You could say the same thing for saves.
Example: On May 10th, the Twins played the O's. BJ Ryan got a blown save on the day. He gave up no runs. The pitcher he relieved, Jorge Julio, gave up a single to Nick Punto, who made his way to third base, and scored on a sac fly given up by Ryan. Ryan got the blown save, Julio got the hold, even though it was his run the crossed the plate. How can a worthwhile stat not hold Julio accountable for the run which blew the game for the O's? Ryan owners got screwed, and Julio owners (if there are any...
) got rewarded for Julio's ER.
