That doesn't change the fact that there are relievers who had longer stretches of peak (albeit not as great) and also had full careers that were solid.

If Kimbrel, god forbid, got a career ending injury right now, he isn't a top-50 reliever of all-time..

He may have an excellent peak but what if his career falls off? That's why longevity is important..because you have their full career.

Kimbrel going now means we are judging him only on two seasons of baseball. The fact that we don't have a full (or at least longer) career to go off of is a detriment to his value.
