he's still extraordinarily patient.  4.3 P/PA is in line with 2010 and 2011, but down from the 4.5 / 4.6 he had from 2005 to 2009.  His BB% is a tick below his career average (11.5% v. 12.1%), but the drop  in Ks is dramatic, as LostY says.

Looking at his BR page, his swung at strikes are at a career high (68%).  the next closest year is 2010 (67%) while last year was 64%. First pitch swing % is also like 2010 and at his career high (19%, v. career avg. of 15%).  Strikes looking declined this year 4% and is closer to 2010.  2011 more closely resembles 2007 - 2009.
