He keeps the ball in the park and has been pretty unlucky the last couple years. he's a better pitcher than his ERA indicates. Since he's 39 and we gave him a 2-year deal, I'm guessing we didn't have to pay a ton of money. If that's the case, this signing shouldn't be too bad.
He's also not really a true LOOGY, as he's a pretty similar pitcher vs. both sides of the plate.
He's not a great pitcher, but he should be pretty decent, which is better than most of the guys trotted out last season. He's an improvement. This signing will come down to the $$$$ for me.
Expect the money to not be too low...WK has shown a great ability to outbid all, even himself, when it comes to Stanton like players.
