He's in the Herges, Biddle, Koch tier of closers.
I don't think so. I know Danny Graves isn't the greatest of closers, but he does have a good history of closing. He saved #149 today, making him the #1 closer in Reds history. That's something those other guys can't touch. That means he's got the closer's job secured in Cincy for as long as he's there.
He'll continue pitching like normal and saving around 80% of the opportunities, but look for the number of opportunities to go down.
