ya but he wasn't even the giants closer any more and rarely saw action, so his impact has been minimal since mike stanton won the job.
The Big Hurt was robbed!

Stanton never "won" the job. Benitez was sitting because of his bad knees. Once he was healthy again, he would have assumed closing duties. I'm sure there were a number of people still holding onto Benitez in close Saves races.

The Giants have a tough call next season because Benitez is under contract for one more season and is owed $7.6M
Tonights review is almost ready to go. Check it out when you get the chance.
