Mark Simon and Katie Sharp of ESPN Stats and Information think the Rangers' new reliever -- Arthur Rhodes -- is rather interesting from a statistical perspective:
Rhodes is one of four pitchers with back-to-back seasons of an ERA+ of 170 or better, with at least 50 innings pitched at the age of 39 or older.

Hall of Famer Hoyt Wilhem had eight such seasons, including five in a row from 1964 to 1968. Roger Clemens did it in 2005 and 2006. Mariano Rivera matched Rhodes with a pair of remarkable seasons in 2009 and 2010.
