Blown Up

Chuckie Hacks reports that Eric Gagne has only 12 blown saves in his whole career. Really? By God, he's right - and two of those are this year. Blown saves didn't become an official stat until 2002, but since that time, Gagne has pitched in 297 games and has recorded 178 saves - with 12 blown saves. The most blown saves he's ever had in a season are four - last year, and in 2002, his first year as closer for the Dodgers. Two already this year.

And something else scary - since 2002 he's only given up 20 home runs, and two of those are this year. Yes, this is reason for concern.
