I was specifically talking about closing game sin the ninth.....originally...in regards to Dibble and Charlton in 1992...and Marshall as well.
I see pitchers being charged with blown saves in the 7th and 8th innings now...even the 6th? I mean...the 8th i can understand....but you are going to charge a pitcher for blowing a save during the 6th and 7th innings as well?
If the relief pitcher gives up the lead, its a blown save, even if it's the 2nd or 3rd inning.
