Even that is overstating his troubles a bit. Willis hit a bad patch from 5/1 through 5/11, but outside of those 10 days he has been outstanding. He was just REALLY bad during that 10 day stretch.
For the year: 18 GS, 123.3 IP, 3.94 ERA, 1.41 WHIP
May 1-11: 3 GS, 14.7 IP, 12.88 ERA, 2.32 WHIP
Everything Else: 15 GS, 108.7 IP, 2.73 ERA, 1.29 WHIP
Outside of that 3 game skid, Willis has been outstanding this season.
