Timely article, as Kimbrel just blew two consecutive saves.

Henke/Ward very dominant, indeed! They also had Wells in the pen.
And who can forget side-armer Eichorn’s ’86 season. Crazy!

actually venters blew the save and kimbrel took the loss in that game… even better timing

I still consider those jays as one of the most under rated teams ever. The rotation and pen from 86 to 94 was stocked. Ward henke, eichorn, wells, timlin. Stewart, key, guzman, stottlmyre, hentgen, cone, steib.
As a yANKEES fan I still hate that team.

Yeah, how could anyone forget Cy Young-winner Joe Carter?

He’s had pretty insane K/9 numbers for a while now. Even though this site likes to pretend humans don’t play the game and that regression, means, averages, and how something behaves most of the time is how you tell how good someone is, a closer has to be able to handle pressure and have a short memory. He’s young, can he handle blowing saves?
Personally, he has ridiculous stuff so I think he’ll get through it.

Wish Fredi understood what a high leverage situation was. Nothing like wasting a Kimbrel inning up by 4 in the 9th which he did Monday night and not pitching him in extra innings against Padres last week.
