So, by that logic, you would rather have Borowski as your closer, K-rod? Or would you rather K-rod because he only has 1 less blown save?
I'd rather have the best pitcher available. Theoretically, a pitcher could have an ERA of 27.00 and still lead the majors in saves. That should point to how worthless that statistic is.
