Young didn't prove himself here, despite his 4.15 ERA and 5.75 innings per start in 20 starts for us last year????

When he's good (see 2006 & 2007) he's very good, and when he's bad he's injured. A healthy Chris Young is a real asset to any team. Baseball-Reference.com rates Young #786 among all pitchers, while they rate Perez #1100. Case closed.

thanx for proving my point.
