What's different about Escobar?

No, but really?

I looked a few days ago for surface stuff, couldn't find anything offhand -- he's seeing the same # of pitches per plate appearance, his g/f ratio is virtually identical. His walk rate is actually down from last season and his strikeouts are up.

His BABIP is obviously crazy right now at .366 vs. .285 last season, but at least his line drive % is up by 7 to support that to some degree. But I guess what I'm asking is, is anyone SEEING anything different to explain any of this, or should I just shrug, enjoy it while it lasts, and expect him to regress any day now?
