He just seems like a guy who can handle setup relief, but falls apart when asked to close. His fortunes turned from good to bad basically overnight, at the precise moment he was given ninth inning duties.
Agreed, I think Belisario will do fine in the setup role. He has good stuff and is familiar to the role.
