How about 69 saves in a row? Not too shabby. Not to mention his record setting K/9 last year of 15. How you would want ANY closer other than him is beyond me. You can't get any better than his 2003 season.
I was glad to see the kid take him downtown.
I realize no one's stats count in that game BUT I have a hard time swallowing those 69 saves knowing he gave it up (after all, you're talking about perfection). The streak is there but I know the real story.
And don't even get me started on the state of the All-Star game. That's a whole 'nother thread waiting to happen.
