Take Jimenez. He had 41 saves last year, although his ERA may hurt you a bit, given that he pitches at Coors. Last year, he had like a 2.90 ERA at Coors, so maybe it doesn't affect him that much. MacKeon, Florida's new manager, is known for not really believing in the traditional use of the closer, and likes the committee approach, meaning that Looper will likely start losing saves.
