… but the fact is, I don’t. I just don’t! Yeah, I know all the stats, but the one that bothers me the most is 6. 6 Blown Saves. That’s not what an elite closer does. I hold my breath
everytime he enters the game. I just don’t think he handles pressure well. Just my opinion, but his 6 blown saves helps support what I say. The last time I blasted Broxton, I was told we couldn’t count the blown saves he got as a setup man. Well, I am counting these and 6 blown saves for someone who is purported to be the best closer in the NL is not good. Maybe I was spoiled by “Game Over” Gagne, but Broxton’s blown saves concern me and I will continue to be nervous when he’s in the game. Jeff Shaw used to get roasted by many of you for his blown saves, and I can’t believe he had too many more than Broxton. Maybe someone can look that up (I’m too busy).
I wish I could be positive about Broxton, but I’m positive I’m not!
That’s all I got. What an ugly loss!
