I gotta agree with Neyer's opinion on Rivera. If you're only talking about the regular season, then it's hard for me to consider a guy who was a part of less than 5% of the total innings his team played in one of the top ten players of the decade.

Rivera's sort of an exception; my rankings of the top 200 players of all time is closer-light, but Rivera's really high, particularly since post-season isn't considered. I think, more broadly, if there's a side of the current performance analysis discussion that I'm on, it's that pitching is a little underrated.
