Saves are the result of important things (being on a good team, being a good pitcher, etc.) but they in and of themselves are not important.

A pitcher with 40 saves is not necessarily a better pitcher with 0 saves. Jesse Crain was probably the best relief pitcher in the A.L. last year before he got hurt. Not 1 save.
