Does Norris' ss/bb rate bother you? I don't know how he is able to keep his era that low while allowing that many free passes.

24 BB and 44 Ks in 41 IP. That is a lot of walks. At the same time, last year it was 31 BB and 84 Ks in AA, 80 IP. A much better ratio. Maybe, he is just getting adjusted to Triple A. One thing I have heard is that, he needs to get more consistent with his third pitch(I think a changeup) to be a major league starter.
