Blow the save get the win...

Postby jealousblues » Mon Apr 23, 2007 12:18 am

Does it irk anyone else that a pitcher can blow the save but still get the win? (especially for fantasy it seems odd)

I suppose wins dont really mean anything (especially for a relief pitcher) and someone needs to be the pitcher of record or what ever...
but its just odd to me.

really odd thing is how can you blow something you don't have...

if one's blow a buck, means one had a buck to blow.

set up relievers are always getting charged with a blown save while if they don't blow it... they don't get it anyway.

the whole save thing is an invention...

predicated on the notion that most pitchers who make it to the big leagues are non-competetive wussies from which the boss hosses
have to filtered out...

either that or managers can't count past one, so they count the innings starting from the last.

The worst is when my opponents RP gets the W after blowing a W for MY SP.

lmao... :*)

Have any of you guys ever considered getting into a league that uses QS instead of Wins or balances the two (maybe through points O:-) )? Might save all of you a lot of headaches.

I'm just sayin'... :-D

yeah using QS or W-L and S-BS is a good way to counteract these statistical BS (no pun intended) ;-D

Not to hijack the thread, but what about getting a hold and a loss!? Duchscherer did that in a game this weekend. I can sort of see the logic, but the fact that he got both a hold and a loss in the same game seems wrong.

[He came into a save situation, got an out and left with the lead still intact, but Street gave up the winning runs, which were charged to Duchscherer.]

I would love to make the change but it's hard finding 11 guys who agree.
