Yes, all those 130 ERA+ seasons start to look the same after a while…
When Burnett signed his five-year, $82.5 million contract, the Yankees didn’t expect his record to be below .500 (31-33) in the first three years.
The trade deadline clock is ticking loudly now, and Ubaldo Jimenez continues to be the name on the lips of everyone who wants Cashman to make a move. The Rockies’ asking price has been too high, even though the 27-year-old righty is supposed to have a manageable contract and ace-like stuff.
Not getting Jimenez would not be a disaster for the Yankees. It could be one of the best things that happen to them if they don’t get him. He could turn out to be a future Burnett - fool’s gold - if he lands in the Bronx.
...If Jimenez joined the Yankees rotation, could he have an immediate impact or would the Bombers have to wait for him to have that rebound season next year?
The Yankees already have an A.J. Burnett. They don’t need another
