That's the point exactly. Although this weekends battle with WAS to see which bad team is worse could result in a couple of save ops.

Just going on memory from my earlier post I believe I found as a team Seattle has had 22 save ops and 13 saves. Now you have to remember save ops and blown saves don't exist only in the 9th inning. Blown saves can occur in the 8th when a setup man fails to hold a lead. I don't know the rules, so I'm not sure if they can occur in the 7th inning, but I'd guess no. I don't know where to find out how many save ops they've actually had in the 9th inning, but it's definitely less then those 22. Putz had 3 BS so adding that to 13 total save as a team and say at least 3 or 4 of those 22 were blown before the 9th inning. So in about 40% of the season seattle has generated less then 20 9th inning save opps.
