Flu-Like Symptoms

Blowin’ in the Wins (Part 2)

by Rob Mains


Last week, I looked at teams that are charged with two or more blown saves in a game. The conclusion was that the number of games with multiple blown saves is increasing, and that increase is largely due to more relievers per game (currently averaging over three per team), creating more opportunities for blown saves. (There, I just spared you reading 1,300 words).

Outstanding commenter Llarry responded:

And the next question is whether there is any consistency to the teams that multiple blown saves are *against*. I notice that two of the ones so far this year were against Houston. Does that end up meaning anything, or is it just random?
