Oh he's certainly going to be it. I'm just saying he is more valuable being used to come in and get important outs rather than as a closer mindlessly coming in the 9th to "save" 3 run leads or come in up 1 or 2 and face the bottom of the order and such. Very misused position as normally the most important relief work is not done in the 9th inning.

Need Sabathia to rebound and if we can bring Kuroda back we'll be fine pitching wise.
I don't see Betances becoming a major leaguer other than random occasional call ups here and there. He's 25 years old already and still has absolutely awful control.
