Some idiot on sports radio was complaining because brian wilson got in with a 4.37 era. if you think era is an important factor for a closer, you don't know much about baseball.

Does he make closing out games as interesting as our Wilson? 11-8 lead and give up 2 solo home runs before getting the final out?

yes, he's definitely what jim leyland would describe as a 'half pack' referring to the amount of cigarettes consumed in the inning. only 2 benitez (blown saves) this year though.
