save opps

Postby perlick29 » Mon Mar 28, 2005 2:00 pm

with my big draft being tonight, I'm trying to sure up some things. What I'm looking for if someone can pull it up is to give me a list of each team's save opportunities in the last 3 years. I really appreciate it as it may help me select my first lower tier closer. ;-D

I'll go run the numbers but methinks it's going to lead you to take Mike Adams. The Brew Crew get a lot of save chances from what I recall.

Something to keep in mind about save opps: you only get credit for one in the 7th or 8th inning if you blow it. If you don't blow a 7th/8th inning save opp you get credited with a hold. So teams with bad MR's might have an artificially high amount of save opps, and vice versa with teams who have good MR's. Sorted by most to worst:

TEAM Sv BS SvO
NY Yankees 161 51 212
Atlanta 156 54 210
Pittsburgh 137 71 208
St. Louis 141 67 208
Cincinnati 127 71 198
Los Angeles 165 32 197
Minnesota 140 57 197
San Francisco 129 67 196
