Pavano Signs with Yankees
Player A: 14-9 / 211 IP / 2.39 ERA
Player B: 18-8 / 222 IP / 3.00 ERA
Player C: 13-12 / 230 IP / 3.24 ERA
Player A is is Kevin Brown the year before he came to the Yankees, Player B is Pavano last year and Player C is Javier Vazquez the year before he joined the Yankees.
For the record Vazquez had a 4.91 ERA his first year in pinstripes and Brown went up to 4.09. I'd be willing to bet that Pavano does not have an ERA under 4.00 next season (or anytime during his contract as long as his home games are at Yankee Stadium).
