It's because his stuff doesn't wow you. IMO his stuff doesn't look great on TV, but it does to a batter. I don't think people realize how much movement his fastball has. Also, he's added that change, which isn't sexy, but I think it's his best pitch.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
