Well, let's see.
I get a good chunk of 3.00 ERA out of Clemens and Wells, I've worked my way up to 6th place (of 12) on the Stat Tracker! Turn off the computer, have some dinner, watch Sopranos and Deadwood. Turn back on the computer to see if my Angels did anything in the nightcap. Whoa! I'm down to 8th place again, having lost 4 points. I look and see my good buddy Herg-ass blew the whole weekend for me. The idea that his awful performances don't affect anything in the long run is misleading, because it does. Not worth the few saves he gives.
