Cody Allen is Hanging ‘Em Up

The Indians franchise leader in saves, Cody Allen, called it a career today.

The 32-year old right hander had interest from a few teams, but decided his time was up.

A closing pitcher is a thankless job. If you lock it down, that’s what is supposed to happen. If you blow the save, you catch hell for the next week.

The Indians liked Cody Allen so much they draft that mothafucka twice.

And he was nails in Cleveland. He converted 147-of-167 save opps from 2014-18 as the Tribe’s full-time closer. If you’re mad at an 88% conversion rate, go fuck yourself. Mariano Rivera was a unanimous Hall of Famer at 89% for his career.

During the Indians 22-game win streak and 2016 playoff run to the World Series, Cleveland made it a five-inning game. Lead after five, Andrew Miller, Bryan Shaw, Cody Allen, drive home safe.

Happy retirement Cody. Keep that cutter down pimp.
