i can only think to compare him to mussina. am i missing a starter? wang is 27-14, not a guy to rack up strikeouts. aaron small had a fine 2005 before being introduced to the reality of doing it again.
over the past two seasons, mussina is 28-15 with an ERA of roughly 4. less starts, strikeouts and innings pitched than johnson (34-19 over the same two seasons) who's ERA averages out to roughly the same, though it hit the worrisome 5.00 mark last year, where mussina's was 3.50 or so; that hardly sets anyone above johnson, particularly in a "you can't be serious," head-and-shoulders better fashion.
he wants out, the yankees are happy to oblige, they free up money for clemens and hope pettite can step in and fill a void.
