That means that Small is better than either Mussina or Johnson. Seeing as Small's major league track record, before his 20 inning sample this season, is atrocious (107 walks in 238 innings), it's safe to say he's not one of the Yankees best 2 starters. Should he be in the rotation? Sure. That said, he isn't one of the Yankees best 2 starters. He was 9-9 with a 5.06 ERA as a 32 year old in AAA last season.
Al Leiter at least has a good track record. I'd trust Torre, the man who coached you to 4 World Series victories on this one.
