Id rather have Mesa over Mota given the pricetags. I know his %s hurt, but Id rather put my fortune in a closer that has converted over 40 save opps in 3 of the last 4 yrs than a guy who has converted 3 of 7.

If you have Schmidt and Zambrano anchoring your staff, by all means, scoop up Mesa in the later rounds when everyone is bad mouthing him. Saves are saves.
If your staff is anchored by a couple of mid tier guys, Mesa might hurt you. If you already have a couple of good closers, why risk Mesa.
It's all relative.

A) blows more opportunities than a closer should be allowed to before losing his job
B) allows far too many baserunners
C) Lets in far too many runs
D) Doenst even have electric stuff anymore
so yeah, unphased by the pressure of needing to perform at ones JOB, makes mesa a steal.
Welcome to ERA and WHIP hell. All aboard the mesa train....
