The Puzzle of Jesse Crain

What do you guys think about Jesse Crain, his 2.35 ERA, and his 25/29 K/BB ratio in 77 innings?

His strikeout rate is horrid this year, and way off what he was doing in the minors. He's still been effective. But can he keep this up? I'd be interested in your thoughts, as I'm trying to figure this out myself.

Poll question in the comments thread.
