Good job.
I really think Bell is being undervalued though. His job is safe and he's in the right park. I don't buy that he will have less save ops cause his team isn't as good.

ya there have been studies done and there is actually very little correlation between wins and save opps. It makes sense because you would assume the games that worse teams do win would be by smaller margins of victory leading to a high percentage of their wins being actual save opps.
