Fangraphs: 2014 Proven Closer Disaster


Recommended Posts


This year, nearly every team who spent resources to acquire a ?proven closer? would have been better off lighting their money on fire instead.
As a group, they have been replacement level by FIP, and two wins worse than replacement level by runs allowed. Walks and homers are up, strikeouts are down, their low HR/FB% and BABIPs have regressed past the mean and are now worse than the league average, and the combination of hits and homers allowed have meant they haven?t been able to strand many of the copious amounts of baserunners they?re allowing. This group has been dreadful.
