|In case you forgot...|
Save Situation - There are a couple of rules here. To qualify as a save situation, the pitcher in the save situation must enter the game later, in other words, he cannot be the starter or the winning pitcher. It doesn't have to be the 9th inning, it can be the 8th, or even the 7th, etc. BUT, he MUST obviously record at least one out. Also one of the following must apply:
1. His team cannot have a lead of more than three runs when he enters the game.
2. He enters the game with the tying run either on base, at bat, or on deck. Regardless of the count when he enters the game.
3. He pitches for at least three innings.
That was a long explanation wasn't it. I told you this was the advanced class. Now, before you start name-calling, nobody here is a Yankees fan. I swear. But, you can't define save without this dude's picture:
|Oh that cutter.|
|Kitten Face on deck and outside the circle. |
And, as you can see, there's NO WAY to get that donut off the fat end of that bat.
|The OPS king*. (Yes, he also get asterisks from 162+)|
|I got it! I got it!|
|That ain't "ordinary effort".|
