Wasn't Cooper one of the people who thought Sale should be a reliever?
Quintana looked good when he arrived from the Yankees, but he has gradually and continually improved. Maybe the language barrier with Cooper has enabled Quintana to improve.
Santiago has been pretty much in a holding pattern.
If you want to put Johnson in the plus column for Cooper that would be extremely generous at this point.
Danks was a lost cause this season.
There are good arguments to be made in Cooper's favor, but this season is not one of them.
