The role of relievers and closers has completely changed since he began. While it may have happened eventually anyway, he certainly sped up the process.

Eventually we will see teams throwing guys out there three innings at a time and pitching every couple days. It will be something like this.

Sabathia for 3 or 4, Nova for 3 or 4, 8th inning guy, closer.

While i agree, a position player is more valuable then another player who plays every couple days and only for a piece of the game, to dominate your position and change the way the game is viewed/played, that is not something that nearly ever occurs.

Very few have done it in any sport.
Mariano changed the game of baseball? How exactly did he do that? What has changed?
