    That Matsui has sure been looking past his prime.

    No... if he pitches the 9th, he gets the blown save and a win in the same game.

    Damn this is fun, the team comes right back and gets those runs Brocail gave up.

    Can we just forget Brocail ever came into the game and let Backe still be on the line for the win?

    Oh yeah, I agree. Was just adding to it for the numerous posters (not you) who went crazy over various players in the offseason and their save/blown save ratios.

    If he can play 130+ games, wow....He & Bourn are just outstanding at the top of the order. Stros haven't had team speed like this since the late 90's.

    Ok, here's a couple questions. I don't feel like looking it up.

    Did we score 10+ back-to-back even once last season? I definitely recall at least one game where we put up double digits.

    How many times did we score 10+ all of last season?

    It's a blown save regardless of the inning, in most circumstances. For example, Lidge had a couple of those situations last year -- one in particular I remember was an even worse spot than Valverde was put in tonight. Bases loaded, none out, one run lead in the 6th inning -- he comes in. Allows only one run on a sac fly, does his job ridiculously well, Astros win the game. Yet under that absurd stat, he was given a "blown save," and you had all sorts of posters slamming him in the offseason for his save/blown save ratio without remotely considering the circumstances.

    The stat sucks. :p

    Once he blew the save, but kept the game tied, there was no chance he was going to be able to get the save.

    He would either have gotten a no decision (if the Astros didn't score), or the win.

    You sure the BS is on Valverde and not Brocail since it was his ER?
