SAVES FOR RELIEF PITCHERS
10.20
Credit a pitcher with a save when he meets all three of the following conditions: (1) He is the finishing pitcher in a game won by his club; and (2) He is not the winning pitcher; and (3) He qualifies under one of the following conditions: (a) He enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning; or (b) He enters the game, regardless of the count, with the potential tying run either on base, or at bat, or on deck (that is, the potential tying run is either already on base or is one of the first two batsmen he faces); or (c) He pitches effectively for at least three innings. No more than one save may be credited in each game.

I just checked, and this is wrong. Look at this boxscore Rincon gets a Blown save, even though he came in in the 7th inning. So it looks like I was right. Save opportunities is a meaningless statistic because random relief pitchers can blow saves in the 6th inning.

C'mon. Doesn't anyone want to congratulate me on my brilliance? :-b Another myth discredited. Save Opportunities have no bearing on how many saves a closer actually gets.
