Rotoworld said Pestano "notched a save." But it was a 5-0 game. Huh?

Rotoworld writers have Pestano on a lot of their teams...trying desperately for a save it seems lol.

rotoworld is talking about today's game.
Vinnie Pestano tossed a scoreless ninth inning Saturday for his first save of the season.
he fill-in closer while Chris Perez (shoulder) is on the disabled list, Pestano worked out around a two-out walk to notch the save. He has shown better velocity in his past two outings, which is a good sign after his recent elbow issue. Make sure to pick him up if he's still available in your league.


5-0. no save.

Padres placed RHP Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf.
Manager Bud Black said the plan is for Luke Gregerson to get most of the work in the ninth. Dale Thayer will serve as the fallback. Street was 11-for-12 saving games this season, but he had allowed seven homers in 20 1/3 innings and taken three losses. The two weeks off might be a good thing for him.


Street to the DL. Gregerson to close.

Betancourt to the DL.


Preference between Brothers/Gregerson?

I was wondering the same: who's the better long term option is my question?

I would say/think Gregerson is a better option than Brothers.
Street is more injury prone than Betancourt.

Gregerson gets the save, although he did give up a run. 3 hits, 1 run. all 3 hits were singles.
