Dubi gets dogged on. Anisimov gets a pass?

its a valid point and AA offensively had a down year but part of the reason he got a pass is that for big parts of the year he did the little things that helped the aa-step-gabby line go
but it all comes down to expections AND NOT simply expectations based on salary. its based on expectation for the players ability...if dubi was still making $1.8 mil this year, his season would still be just as crappy and disappointing as it is making $4 mil
AA had 18-26-44 last year, so I would have hoped for 20+ goals this year and he got 16.
But dubi had 24 goals last year, 20 the year before...i considered him a LOCK for 25 and expected him to get 30 and he ended up with 10...and thats not a 'well we paid him more so he should score more' expectation, that was an expectation based on his play regardless of salary...
the guy you expected to score 30 that scored 10 is far more disappointing then the guy you expected to score 20 and got 16.
