Great stuff/poor command; prematurely promoted to the majors; over reliance on his fastball with a need to refine his secondary pitches, too soon to call him a bust.
Certainly, I'm not using that data to argue that Homer will post a K/9: >8 and a BB/9: <4.0 next season (because I agree with you that such a projection is beyond aggressive). In fact the f/x data suggests he didn't have anything close to major league quality command in '07 while demonstrating a below-average make 'em miss ability despite above average velocity on his fastball and above average break on his curve. That data BTW, agrees very well with my eyes.
I'd agree with this assessment in large part -- and I saw just about every one of Homer's starts. I would add -- he made progress with his curveball. It was much better in the starts he made after coming back from injury. So -- in my opinion, he took a step forward in a relatively short period of time, despite having been knocked around in some earlier starts. A nice trait to see.
