Sheffield was so hyped and now we’ve given away our top pitching prospect for someone with an ERA just under 4 last season who’s never won more than 12 games. Sabermetricians can talk about his other metrics all they want, and they can also go fuck themselves.
I don't think they had trust in Sheffield that he was going to progress to being a major league starter.

Paxton is hurt every season, usually twice.  Maybe Sheffield never becomes a stud but I saw enough of him to know he’d be awesome at the back end of the bullpen.  Yanks would have just fucked him up the way they did with Joba Chamberlain anyway so hopefully the Mariners leave him alone and let him start.  Then we will see.
