How about this guy?
Nice, but that's not "increasingly better results every year for the past 5 seasons."
Part of this has to do with going from a role where he often pitched more than an inning to one where he consistently pitched less. I would imagine he's had the platoon differential more in his favor over the past five years (on the whole).
A favorite of mine since he started here in Texas, but also now indelibly associated with Game Six last year.
For about the last 6 years, every time I've seen Darren Oliver my reaction was "He's STILL pitching?!", which I guess isn't fair given how well he's pitched.
Oliver was the long reliever for the 2006 Mets, the year that revitalized his career.
I was miffed when the Mets didn't retain him. It was a mistake that the team paid for.
I'm happy for Mr. Oliver that he got to a couple WS with Texas.
Any word from the Mariners' Oliver? Is he a man ready to retire?
