Really though, Kimbrel is crazy underrated.

Career through 30
1.91 ERA
212 ERA+
1.96 FIP
0.920 WHIP

Rivera through 30 (taking out his rookie year where he started games and sucked)
2.13 ERA
223 ERA+
2.80 FIP
1.041 WHIP


And that's stacking him up against the best reliever of all time.

Does he have HOF numbers? Serious question. I thought he just had a couple good years with Red Sox

I thought he sucks and is overrated? Serious question.

The arm dangle bothers me more than it ought to. But he was mediocre in the playoffs. Hopefully that's an indication of what's in store, but he certainly has had plenty of time to walk it off.

He’s got an ugly ass pre-delivery.

I've never heard the story. Maybe it's for a dead brother or something. But it looks silly. It's like that scene in every Marvel movie where they pose really hard before the big fight. And it looks even sillier when he's putting 5 of six guys on. Fernando Rodney waits until he's done his job to start posturing.

I don't think it's posturing. If I recall it's all about getting a good look in at the catcher. I agree it looks silly but he gets paid a lot to have what would be a dream job for most of us.
