    Kenley Jansen has 423 saves. A career ERA of 2.51 . And a WHIP of less than 1.00. One of the all time best closers. But Sox fans will be Sox fans.
    Old school is good school.

    He even has a career 2.20 post season ERA with 20 saves. He’s had a hell of a career

    I’m not a big “elite closer” guy, and Jansen is clearly winding down a career that might put him in Cooperstown. But even if you don’t agree with the closer strategy, you still need good pitchers in the bullpen. And Kenley still is one..

    True. He is still really good, but he's not the guy from long ago. His WHIPM has been over his career average, every year since 2018, but it is still has been very good : 1.077 (2018-2024)
    11.2 K/9
    3.2 BB/9

    2018-2024: 350 qualifying RP'ers
    11th in RP fWAR (6.2)
    38th K% (30.4%) but 156th in BB% (8.7%) 32nd in K-BB% (21.6%)
    65th K/9 (3.48)
    64th ERA- (75)
    110th in xFIP (3.88)

    When you say it's gonna happen now
    When exactly do you mean?
