Shutdowns, Meltdowns, and Saves

"For the longest time, saberists would denigrate the Save, commenting about how its rules were convoluted, it didn’t properly value relief pitchers, and it put an undo stress on the ninth inning.

I know you're angry! (Harvey Milk voice) I'm angry! But hey, Cleveland is 12-22! (crowd cheers madly) ## So, it was another loss, only this one was a laugher, a game that was over by the third...

Worried About That Meltdown in LA?


Well you shouldn't be, according to Seamus O'Callahan of the dallasstars.com. Thursday's loss marked the fourth such meltdown loss for the Stars in LA in just over the last three years. And after each of the first three, the Stars went on an extended unbeaten streak.

I'm tired of watching Ross Gload. I'm tired of watching Jose Guillen. I have a vague unsatisfied desire to see what Ryan Shealy can do. I would love to see Kila. Personally, I'm bored with Billy...
