I would rather have seen Boston put a two year gamble on Sheets.
One year deals never fail in the long run though, so I'm not too broken up or excited about this either way. Penny can be a good pitcher when he's on, which is more than Colon had going for him.
Yea a CY Young Award is just worthless these days...
Johan '05: 2.87 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 238 K
Buehrle '05: 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 146 K
Colon '05: 3.48 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 157 K
Please never bring up Colon's Cy Young award to support an argument in favor of him.
Two players easily put up better numbers than he did, and I'd even make an argument to rank Rivera and his 1.38/0.87/80/43 (2 BSV) line above Colon.
Plus that award was 3 years old by the time Colon signed with Boston, and he himself was 35.
