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.
I was kind of upset too since I have Brothers for $6 in my NL keeper league. Then I thought about it some more and this could work out better for me. Someone else will spend closer money on Hawkins and there is next to no chance he keeps that job all year. I will probably be able to get Brothers for $1.
