4 years playing FBB and when I've owned Randy he's
won 7 games with an ERA of 4.50 and a Whip of 1.25. When I haven't owned him he's won 40 games with a 2.30 ERA and a Whip barely above 1.00.
Get him off my roster and he becomes studly again.

First off, he's 41. So when you're 40+ and you start the season off badly, the odds of him returning to greatness are greatly decreased.
Fact is, his age will catch up to him, sooner rather then later. I think he'll have a decent year, but I'm guess 4ish era all year. He's lost a little speed, and he's just not as intimidating as he used to be.
If I drafted him in the 1st round, I'd unload him the next time he tossed a gem. Don't get my wrong, those will happen, but probably fewer and fewer at this age.
Maybe he'll find the fountain of youth, but in general I avoid everyone 40+, a simple injury can mean far longer stints on the DL then a 25 year old. And who wants to be the guy who drafts a 41/42 year old guy on the year he sucks out and retires.

I am not positive, but aren't his days of 97-98 behind him? I don't think he hits those speeds anymore, I may be wrong. If he does he only does it maybe a couple times a game.
For a couple years he has been average 93-95.
