Jeurys does exactly one thing well - he throws hard. Very hard. Unfortunately, at this point he has absolutely no idea how to pitch. Forget about spotting the fastball. It's a total mystery where the ball is going to end up after it leaves his hand. Can't even say he's "effectively wild" because when the ball finally ends up in the strike zone, it's frighteningly straight and hittable.

Can't give up yet on a kid who can routinely light up a radar gun at 98, but it's going to be awfully tough to watch him throw this season. I can't call what he does "pitching" because right now he's nothing but a thrower.

I was telling people that Jeurys was gonna turn into a great closer for the future and he has arrived this season in spectacular fashion! Amazing how improved command can make a world of a difference! Too bad he got snubbed from being a 2015 All-Star.

Jeurys has looked like Mariano in his prime in the post season so far!

Looking back at my comments from 2013, it's absolutely amazing how far Familia has come. Not his arm - that's always been there. I'm blown away by his mental toughness.

This postseason he has been the anti-Armando Benitez, who consistently melted down under pressure. When Terry Collins brought Familia in for a 6-out save in Game 5 against the Dodgers, I thought Collins had lost his mind. However, that might have been the filthiest stuff I saw Familia throw all year long - 98 mph with sink on the black. Watching Howie Kendrick, who had been swinging the bat pretty well in the series, flail at Familia's pitches like an over-matched high school kid to make the final out was stunning. Kendrick had as much chance of making contact as I did.

Even though the official scoring has him at 3 blown saves, really he only blew one save. Outstanding closer for years to come though!
