    He went 1+ in 3 of his 65 games last season.

    Now THAT was a throw. Great job hanging in by Towles too.

    That was close. I'm not so sure he was safe

    I may be ignorant, but that looked like an out to me.

    Can anybody help me understand that call? It looked like he tagged his left leg well before he touched the plate.

    I thought the same. The bottom of his glove tagged him right as he caught the ball. Does that not count?

    Only caught the 1 replay & need to see it again, but it looked like Towles didn't have control of the ball until after AG hit the plate with his arm.

    I just rewinded and watched the replay. That was the right call. Runner was safe.

    The runner touched the plate with his hand before a tag was made by Towles (if he ever even made the tag). The replay showed he was clearly safe.

    It wasn't a matter of controlling the ball. He didn't tag him.

    On another note, Valverde was pretty good.

    We just scored 7 runs in a game that Peavy started... and yet we're not winning this game.

    That's dissapointing.

    The next time anyone cites the save/blown save statistic, they need to be pointed to this game. Valverde did an excellent job, yet somehow he gets the "blown save" under that absurd statistic because Brocail gave up 3 runs and left a runner on third with one out. Worst stat in all of sports.

    EDIT: Buck beat me to it.

    Maybe, I missed something. I was saying Valverde did good.

    It would be cool to have some sort of standarized stat for relievers comparable to the quality start. There's so much more context to relievers appearances (part of game, score, men on base?) that I'm not sure you could do it.

    Have I mentioned yet how much I like Kaz?

    Is it a blown save even in the 8th? What if he comes in now and saves it? Is that a blown save and a save in the same game????
