Second straight appearance for K-Rod where it is NOT a save situation.

As per the discussion recently in this thread, Managers who decide not to manage to the save might impact the value of closers, and so far K-Rod could be an example of that.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

Out of the 20 something blown saves the Mets had last year, how many were from the person NOT the closer? And how many were the night after the CLOSER pitched and was not available to pitch for a second straight night.

Would be interesting to see.
Good luck, feel free to PM me

Mets are off tomorrow, no reason for them not to use Putz and K-rod in a 1 run game. At home there was no chance of a save opp after they were still behind following the 8th.

Scott Downs just nasty again tonight.

Gave up a weak lead off double, guy goes to 3rd on a WP w/ no outs, so Downs promptly K's the next 3 hitters.

Also interested in current thoughts on Chris Perez.

BJ actually doesnt blow it.

He gave up 2 hits & was saved by a DP. His fastball was working at 82-86 mph. Just not impressive at all.

I wish I owned Downs.

BJ was throwing 82-86? Are you sure that was his fastball? He was throwing 87-89 when he gave up those 4 runs against the Indians. Either way it's good to see him actually get a save.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

La Russa is obviously picking his closers by what the happy hour wheel hit last night. :-*
