    His name is the rock.
    Today the rock shaked in Mexico.
    It always shakes on this day.
    All central Americans celebrate independence from the Catholic empire and freedom from the Spanish inquisition by screaming viva!

    Then 3 days later the rock shakes.

    The easiest way for me to measure this is by reflecting on my immediate thoughts when I know he's about to come in and close a game.

    Whether it's right or not, my first thought is that it's very possible he blows the save. Feels like that has to be a 1. Simply don't trust him whatsoever in high leverage, high pressure games.

    A month ago I would've said negative ten. Nine consecutive hitless innings got him up to about five. Giving up a 3-run HR to a crappy hitter lands him at four... and that's a generous four. I want to see another scoreless streak before rating my confidence over five.

    I gave him a 5, too.

    In the post, he won't have Zona or Frisco to ass molest anymore. I'd say that based on reg season, he's nearly a 7 considering he will likely get another 5 saves off shit teams. I'll credit those to him.

    But he's 50% likely to give up a lead against a team like Atlanta or NY.

    trust him more with a big lead and/or in the 8th inning or earlier — 6
    in the 9th and/or in a tight game — 2
    overall — 4

    Think he needs to change his song again. Highway to Hell perhaps?

    Better would be Zevon's shortest , "If You Won't Leave Me, I'll Find Somebody Who Will"

    That way, when they release him outright, they can keep playing it.
