The statistic Left On Base Percent is a good indicator of a pitcher's ability. LOB% refers to the percentage of runners that got on base but didn’t score. Good pitchers have a high LOB%.

Fangraphs.com contains the LOB% rates for 299 relievers who pitched this past season in the National League. Near the bottom of the list was Guillermo Mota. However, the Mets reliever with the highest LOB% was Joe Smith.

It may be time forr us to move on past this salary strain.
