How many times must it be said? Whether or not a team is good has ZERO bearing on the amount of saves a closer might get. In the words of Will Ferrel - "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!!!" <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>
In any case:
zero? i might be wrong...as i usually am...but i would guess it would at least influence a little on the SV opps...
looking at the SV leaders from last year...from the top 15...only 4 come from teams with a losing record. this is a small sample of course...and one might argue that those top 15 are actually good closers and that's why they are on winning teams...
i'm sure you guys discussed this already...is this thing about closers who play for winning teams are likely to get more SV than those playing for losing teams one of those fantasy myths?
