Nope. A save opportunity only arises in that situation if a new pitcher is brought in. That would be akin to a SP going into the ninth with a 5 run lead, giving up 3 runs, loading the bases with one out, and inducing a double play ground ball. He gets the win, but no save, obviously as has been stated already in the other post--you can't save your own win. But it's a similar enough comparison to the hypothetical in your question to make it clear that the answer is no.

same here. I had them both in my 16 team keeper league, with Beachy being 1 of my 5 keepers for my 1st time in this league. I came into the season keeping David Price along with Beachy, so at least I still have Price. but the rest of my pitching staff is thin. I also have AJ Burnett, so I've been fortunate there. along now with Price and Burnett I have Christian Friedrich (away starts) and Clayton Richard (home starts). plus other pitchers who have seen injuries this season in Brandon McCarthy and Ted Lilly. I do have stashed in the DL Brett Anderson and Joe Wieland. I've done well in ERA(15points), WHIP (10points), and wins(16 points). so I don't think I NEED to trade for another similar pitcher to Beachy.
