I agree about the luck part but I do not see where a pitcher barely above average in any regard commands that kind of contract. It was an overreaction to Buerhle leaving in my opinion. Sabermetrics and WAR might disagree with that statement, and I do like those things as useful baseball tools, but I thought it was a bad gamble at the start. Never thought Danks was anything special.
