He still isn't the same. His fastball is weaker and he isn't as good. 2 month sample sizes suck. That doesn't mean he is not a stable member of the the Reds rotation, but don't look for 2006,2009-10 production. The only reason he wasn't better in 2007-8 was because of his hand numbness which he eventually got medicated and his numbers rebounded.
Matter of fact, this season reminds me of a poor mans version of 2006. I suspect the numbers will show that out in the end.
