what is your basis for any of those statements?
1. randy johnson had a great 2nd half and pitched well in the postseason, both as a starter and in relief in game 5.
2. the yankee bullpen is better then the mets bullpen. period.
3. the yankees have a better lineup backing up randy then just delgado backing up pedro. last season randy got more run support per start then almost every other starting pitcher outside of boston.
