Many people wondered if the Yankees signing Chan Ho Park was a good deal. When they think of him, they think of his starts, especially the not good ones. But he had and ERA of around 2.50 as a reliever, so it seems like it is worth it. The Yankees also signed him late, making the deal cheaper than it's supposed to be.

For all of you Yankees fans saying that he can't pitch: you're wrong. How did he pitch shutout ball out of the pen, in his first World Series, against the Yankees?
