    The CHicago broadcasters said 27. Burton should be the closer. Weathers is meat.

    If the bullpen has blown 27 saves opp's, this should be a playoff team. This is shameful. I'm not blaming anybody, WK is trying hard, but its not happening. :thumbdown

    Burton has 3 BS in 44 appearances. Weathers has 6 in 65.

    Let's not forget Burton appeared in a lot of games earlier in the year in mop up duty. Weathers will still the be the closer this year and should be. Our biggest problem this year wasn't Weathers, it was the 8th inning. Of those 27 BSs, I wonder how many of those were due to the setup guys.

    18 is MLB average/team.


    Weathers 6 (65)
    Burton 3 (44)
    Majewski 3 (28)
    Stanton 3 (65)
    Coffey 3 (57)
    Guardado 2 (11)
    McBeth 2 (18)
    Coutlangus 2 (62)
    Saarloos 1 (33)
    Gosling 1 (27)
    Salmon 1 (23)

    And someone else that I'm not going to look up.

    Weathers is tied for 6 BS with 15 other guys in blown saves so he's basically your average closer.

    How many save opportunities is what matters not appearances.

    Re: Blown Saves

    Hoping this chart is readable, showing each team's Save Percentage...

    Team SV%
    St. Louis Cardinals 0.775
    Arizona Diamondbacks 0.766
    Los Angeles Dodgers 0.754
    Milwaukee Brewers 0.738
    Chicago Cubs 0.736
    New York Mets 0.712
    Atlanta Braves 0.673
    San Diego Padres 0.672
    Philadelphia Phillies 0.655
    Pittsburgh Pirates 0.646
    San Francisco Giants 0.636
    Florida Marlins 0.621
    Washington Nationals 0.612
    Colorado Rockies 0.586
    Houston Astros 0.582
    Cincinnati Reds 0.534


    Think this sheds light on why we'll be home in October.

    I think that's why we are talking about it. If we had a higher save percentage we would atleast be somewhat in contention right now.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Great stats. Add it all up, Runs scored, etc. if this bull pen had only been 50% better----which still wouldn't be all that great--- they'd be in 1st place and fighting the Cubs and Brewers off. Kinda' brings on nausea..

    Looks like the Reds are equal opportunity blowers. I'll bet most of their BS came before the All-Star game, though.

    Re: Blown Saves

    Geez, I knew our bullpen was bad, but that's ridiculous. When we turn the game over to the bullpen with a lead, we win just over half of the time. Put another way, the Reds have to win the first six innings or so to even have a 53% chance of winning the game. That is mind boggling.

    It would be good to have a breakdown on when we had the blown saves. I also think most of them probably occurred in the first half.
