Every SP they sign does great for every team BUT the Yankees. Weaver was lights out in Detroit, and has improved a lot since joining LA. Brown was great in LA, Texas, Baltimore, SD, Florida - everywhere he's pitched - and is crap in NY. Wright figured it out in ATL and stinks in NY. Same to some extent with Pavano, only from FLA. Vaz was awesome in Montreal, and is awesome again in Zona. What exactly does Mel Stottlemyre do? Or maybe not do for that matter?
That's what I've been saying for a long time now. Mel just isn't getting anyone better or even keeping them the same
