As you might’ve seen or read about already, Blevins came through with a clutch ninth-inning relief appearance that allowed the A’s to beat the Angels, 6-5. According to Cool Standings, the win boosted Oakland’s playoff odds from 85 percent to 90 percent, and the loss dropped LA’s playoff odds from 32 percent to 26 percent. Recall that the Angels were supposed to be one of the best teams in recent baseball history. There is now a three-in-four chance they don’t even reach the one-game playoff. I don’t know how these odds would’ve swung had the Angels rallied and won, but suffice to say things would look very different indeed.
The save that won the critics prize at Cannes and the wet t-shirt contest at the Salty Dog in Gainesville, Florida. Right now the save is stealing a twenty from your wallet and you don’t even care, for it is money that you have and a Jerry Blevins save is what you need.
