    Almost. They had 28 saves in those 53 save opportunities. They were next to last in baseball in saves.

    Yup, the Reds bullpen was atrocious last year, especially early in the season. When Iglesias came back, things improved fairly quickly. I think Lorenzen may have come back around the same time, too.

    For the record, I'm not too keen on splitting time between Iglesias and Lorenzen as a closers, either. I'd rather see them award Storen the closer's role to provide some stability. If he has a good first half, he may have some trade value for a team that's looking to bolster its bullpen and add a quality set up man. Quite frankly, I think they're considered about Iglesias' shoulder & durability.

    Giants had the most blown saves with 32.

    And blew leads in eighth and ninth today. Bullpens are a managers worst nightmare year in, year out.
