Why does TLR keep him around? He's sucked since the end of the 2009 season!
We never seem to have a closer / relief who can make a career out of it. Guys who get hot, but no one who seems to keep the job. It doesn't help that we seem to go down a starter every season and spread the workload on the bullpen, but yeah for a guy who's only playing 3 innings or less you might as well change it up while you can make a difference on the season.
