His stats are as good as ever, but he's never had that extra 'it' that real dominant closers seem to have.
His stats are decent for a starting pitcher not a closer. Upper 3 ERA, too many walks and hits , spotty command . Not an elite strikeout closer. He's just another guy with good stuff . They could easily find another just as good or better in the offseason.
