Blowing Saves

Who would have thought that this year would be the year for blowing saves.  I cannot remember a season quite like this one.  From J.J. Putz in Seattle, to Corpas in Colorado, to Papelbon in Boston, there have been quite a number of blown saves.  Where have the real closer gone.  It use to be an art form and now it is more a liability for most teams.  Hopefully as the season wears on someone will step up and show that art form of closing a game out when needed.  I have noted that closers tend to not get much work in when there is no save on the line.  Many closers go 3-4 days without working a game which I think is the problem.  They should at least get in a game every other day to keep sharp.  Good luck closers.
