It's not like they were getting blown out - they were down by one run, and they expected their "best relief pitcher" to keep them in the game. As usual, he was unable to do that. You're acting like he came into a 10-1 game - it was 2-1. I can't believe you think his job as closer is secure.

Even nowadays managers tend to be reactionary and quite uninformed about modern baseball statistical analysis. However hundreds of thousands of innings of MLB data has shown that peripherals are a much better indicator of future success than highly variable statistics such as ERA. In the long run Hanrahan will be the best option in the DC bullpen. Given the chance he should end up with a decent ERA, great Ks and some saves to boot.
