I agree but if he gets it back, he is a closer not a middle reliever. It was a cheap gamble-$250,000. The question now is if the injury was the cause of his problems. John Farrell said he was almost as good as 2011 in spring training and then he got the oblique injury.
Oh well it was not to be. But I saw him a lot in Boston and he dominated for a couple of years.
