Wonder why Yahoo doesn't incorporate this stat in their scoring systems :-? ?

good question, but I think its because there are too many possibly categories already. Errors? C'mon fantasy baseball is not about defense.

I agree

I agree, blown saves is something that people who set up their own league should be able to factor in. I guess Yahoo figures that most people like the standard roto scoring. I like points leagues too.

well, i think it's good not to have blown saves.

If blown saves was category, I don't think I would have any closers.

By getting rid of all of your closers, sure, you lose the chance of getting Saves every week, but at the same time you guarantee yourself at least a tie in blown saves, and in most cases you probably will get the win.

Think of roto though.
