Scouting Report

AssetsHad the greatest cutter the game ever saw, which continued to fool hitters badly until the end of his career. Was incredibly durable and the best clutch closer of all time. Didn't let anything bother him. Rarely walked anybody.
FlawsWas never very good with his move to first base (fortunately, he rarely had any base-runners to worry about). Didn't throw anything soft, so he could be more hittable when his command is off. Righties saw his pitches better.
Career potentialThe greatest closer in the history of MLB.
