Fangraphs, a great site to get lost in for a few hours, has this stat called O-Swing %. I don’t know if they invented it, but they probably did because they’re smarter than us.

J.P. Howell has back-to-back blown saves. Joe Nelson hasn’t even sniffed a save opportunity after getting saves when Percival was healthy. Balfour has given up 7 runs in the last five games. Isringhausen hasn’t pitched in June. Dan Wheeler got his first save opportunity on Saturday and blew it.Please, blog, may I have some more?

(Notched a Save and a Win in a doubleheader the other day — natch!) On another team, I’m rocking Dan Meyer.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Indians have been more of a trainwreck than Jeff Conaway and Tom Sizemore doing a community theater production of The Taking of Pelham 123. Now Grady Sizemore hits the DL with elbow inflammation. For whatever reason, this season he’s shown himself to be a bit of a flight risk.Please, blog, may I have some more?
