Speier: What the Red Sox Got in Aaron Cook

"Since an All-Star 2008 in which he went 16-9 with a 3.96 ERA in 211 innings, Cook saw his ERA grow every year (from 3.96 to 4.16 to 5.08 to 6.03). His walks and WHIP also got worse on an annual basis, with his ERA+ and innings totals declining every year. Durability has also been an ongoing issue, as he has just two career seasons of 200+ innings, and three seasons of 160 or more innings. Some of that involved freak health issues — for instance, nearly fatal blood clots in his lungs in 2004 — but whatever the reason, he has not been a perennial innings eater." -- Alex Speier, WEEI.com
