From the closers thread:

DirtyKash wrote:Bobby Jenks was denied a save on Monday after Matt Thornton started the ninth in the White Sox's 4-1 win over the A's.
Thornton retired Eric Chavez to end the eighth and then Nick Swisher to begin the ninth. Jenks entered then and retired both batters he faced, but he would have needed to get at least three outs to earn the save in a three-run game.

He entered the game with 1 out he needs to start the inning with a 3-run lead to get the save(new rule change this year) so basically Ozzie screwed all Jenks owners 2nite.

is that a new rule? I thought it's always you had to start the inning with a 3 run lead or come in with the tying run on deck.

That sucks- Ozzie should make sure Jenks gets as many save ops as possible so at least some people (Jenks owners) will like him.

That's right. Major league managers should think about their players' fantasy stats before trying to win games.

No it's not a new rule, it's always been that way.

Ozzie loves playing match-ups and left Thornton in to pitch to Swisher to start the 9th. If you're a Jenks owner you better get used to it because it will happen again this season.

I believe the wording says something to effect that the pitcher must enter a game where there's a chance he'll face the tying run to earn a save. So if a pitcher enters at the beginning of an inning with no outs, a 3-run lead is the most his team can have if he wants the save. For every out you remove, the number goes down one.

All of that's assuming that there's no one on base. If he would have entered with one out, one runner on, and a 3-run lead, that would have been a save situation because two batters could theoretically tie the game.
