    Before today, teams were hitting a combined .572 OPS against him. Now, no one expected that to continue, but I'm unclear as to why there's a suggestion that he had been lucky. It's not like he has been giving up a ton of baserunners and leaving them stranded.

    he has a low K rate, a high BB rate, a low BABIP and a high strand rate. That is not sustainable in the long run. His only discernable skill is a low HR rate(he hadn't given up any).

    He has been fortunate in his outcomes. There is nothing to suggest he will be anything more than an average middle reliever.

    The offense threw out the instructions, Narron left the Crazy Glue at home, and the bullpen slipped and fell fullweight on the HO-scale-model lead zeppelin.
