James Shields in the last 4 years has had an ERA in the 2's the 3's the 4's and the 5's
But yet Dickey is the one that is "so unpredictable" you know with his highest and lowest ERA in the last 3 years being a difference of 0.55 points.
Yeah so much credit should be given to Alderson for "recognizing" the talent of a guy who had just put up a 2.84 ERA and was willing to sign for cheap.
And if you don't think the Wilpons wanted to shrink payroll...why did it? You're arguing with facts on that one. Didn't we have the biggest payroll drop from one year to another ever?
