It could be that he needed to adjust and get his slider more in the strike zone - that batter figured out to stay off that pitch because it was almost never hittable. The adjustment he made was to get it in there enough to keep them honest.
I think I'll take him either way. You're still talking about a guy with a good strikeout rate, an average walk rate and a low hit rate.

For <$2 Million, there is little risk. He's similar to Matt Capps, and that's solid. There aren't any givens remaining in the reliever market, so might as well get a solid one.
