um

if we're comparing Burrows to "vintage Cook", remember what happened to him?

He signed a 3 year $4.5 million contract, and never lived up to it. He got frustrated and became even more ineffective, and left with bitter things to say. He was once one of my favorite players on the team, but that contract ruined him.

You just don't sign players like that to a long term contract - there is just so little upside, and so much downside.
