oh, I didn't make myself clear. I was semi-referring to the fact that lyon actually has a closing opportunity, while other, better pitchers do not. Plus the guys behind him are banged up.
So in this sense, lyon's worth is tied up by the fact that other options aren't much better and so far so good.
I don't buy inot the idea that better teams have more save opps -- I don't think the stats bear that out.
