Pick your poison with these two guys. Their blown saves always seem to come in very important games.

From my experience many of the lurkers here are Cub fans.

Keith has 7 saves so i guess hes' been doing pretty good so far.He made a location mistake to Giambi but came back out after oakland regain the lead and Foulke got the win.His numbers are great and i'd give anything to have him THIS YEAR instead of bombs away Billy.

Foulke blows the save opportunity but then Oakland comes back to win. Foulke gets the win.

Statistically, does that still count as a blown save?

Yes, anytime a relief pitcher blows a lead, it's a blown save even if he ends up being credited with a win.

Maybe it's because most blown saves seem like big games because it's tough to lose a game late? Or possibly blown saves tend to happen against good teams who can hit and are more likely to score runs in the ninth.

And to answer DrCrawdad's question: it's still a blown save if your team comes back to win. Foulke gets both the win and the blown save in the game.
