who really cares?! his 17 saves should erase anyone's animosity towards him. and who cares about his 4 blown saves? he can have 20 blown saves by seasons end for all i care, as long as he gets 50+ saves! oh wait, he IS on pace... and he's not hurting ur averages in the process! what more do you want?
Yeah, he looked really horrible as he struck out three of the four batters he faced after giving up one longball to arguably the hottest hitter in baseball right now.

take it easy gents. All I know is Graves is getting saves and has respectable era and whip numbers, so he is a good fantasy producer who I am happy to have on my roster. He may not be the best closer in real life but that ain't gonna stop me from dropping him. Next year he is probably going to loose his job to Wagner anyway.

He's in the Herges, Biddle, Koch tier of closers.
Exactly. Although I like to use the term walking disaster.
18 SV out of 22 SVO is not that impressive. Hell almost any closer in baseball could produce that ratio.
The only difference is the guy gets so many SVO. I guess that makes him good.
