Now if I was going to grade him on expectations, I'd give him a B+ or so.
The only thing Randy did well was stay healthy. $16M ought to buy you a pitcher thats not below the league average in ERA.
Fair enough but an F??
I went to 4 Yankee games all year and Randy pitched 3 of them. The Yankees were out of it by the 4th in two of those. In the one game he won, he still gave up 5 runs.
This of course isn't reason enough to give him an F, but the only positives you can take from his season is that he gave them innings, and they were below average innings for $16M.
Its easy to pick at others' statements, so how about posting your grades?
