Why the surprise? He was never that great. His decent run to start the year was a surprise actually, especially considering his comeback status. And even then, he wasn't great considering his K rate and WHIP. He doesn't dominate anyone, but just tries to make everyone hit the ball and pray for the best. I owned him in both leagues I play in, and while I was happy enough w/ his help back then, I was constantly wondering when he'll give up the next big inning and eventually lose the closer job. Well, he got hurt instead, and now, it looks like Valverde has the job as it really should be -- and I own Valverde in both leagues.
