How does this guy keep getting paid, and keep getting jobs pitching at the end of baseball games? Regardless of what any statistic or metric may say, I watched this guy pitch for the Mets all year, and he sucks. And that was during what was probably the best season of his entire career. He's sucked with the Rockies once, and he'll suck with them again. It stinks that this is just another team with a closer I won't roster. I hate limiting my options.
Hawkins did well when Parnell got hurt though. For 2.5mil, he went for cheap too. I can't believe why the Mets didn't keep him. Now they are saying they need more bullpen depth. Then why not keep Hawkins for 2.5? Or do they think they can get good depth for less? Ha!
