Yes it is true that Bernero may be in more of a committee situation, but I think it also must be noted that Atlanta's team will probably create so many more save opportunities than Cincy will. Even if Bernero is in a closer by committee situation, he still may see just as mnay opportunities as Wagner even if Wagner has the closer role all to himself.
I don't have the numbers off hand ..
But it seems to me that Graves had a ton more opportunities than Smoltz over the last couple of years..
That's my thought as well. Saves are so hard to predict anyway, so really it's a crapshoot. And the fact that Bernero might be part of a committee over Wagner is a concern. The fact that Wagner has blown all three save opps. is a tad misleading too, as I'm assuming those occurred in past years. That's hardly a sample anyway, but it is something to consider I guess. It's hard/impossible to say for sure, it's just the gut feeling I get.
