Here is what I just posted at playertrack.com:

Great game again last night. I'm going to have to scour the sabermetric blogs to discover whether this is simply luck?

His K:BB ratio is at about 1.

He doesn't strike out a lot of batters, so the opposing team contact is there.

I think this is worthy of note for those of you who are excited about Floyd:

His last two games were against the anemic offense of Minnesota (13/14 in runs scored in the AL).

His first two games were against the anemic (surprisingly) offense that was Detroit in early April.

His games in between? A game versus the Yankees where he allowed 5 ER in 6 IP. And a game against the mostly anemic offense (so far) in Baltimore (11/14 in runs scored in the AL; 12/14 in AVG).

My conclusion so far: I *WANT* to get excited here, and I think if I owned him (I don't in any of my leagues), I just couldn't pull the trigger to part with him. But, thew unbiased part of me thinks that would be a mistake. Sell high.
