Wilson threw just 89 pitches but wouldn't you know it, Graves comes in for his 22nd save chance this year and unbelievably the Reds have won 22 games. If I didn't know better I would have sworn the Cincy manager has Graves on his fanatsy baseball roster
Yep, currently 100% of the time Graves gets a save opportunity when the Reds win. Converted 18 and blown 4. Gagne would be a NO. 1 draft pick if he played for these guys.
Graves has had to pitch just once this season in a non save situation
The Reds have won all 22 games by 3 runs or less apart from a 4-0 win against LA the other night that Graves still got a save from.
Compare that to the Cards who have as good a record in the same division but give their closer sod all opportunities, and when he does get one he forgets what he's supposed to do
Sorry, this post is just sour grapes on my part because I ended up drafting guys like Baez, Julio, Guardado and Issy who can't buy a save these days
