Pitching Season Finder Now With Blown Saves and Save Perc – Baseball-Reference.com

Posted by sean on April 23, 2014

Pitching Season Finder -- - Baseball-Reference.com.

Note that we only compute blown saves for games in which we have play-by-play which is mostly complete back to 1954, but only 100% back to 1973. See our Coverage Page for all of the gaps in the data.

Save percentage is Saves / (Blown Saves + Saves).

  1. Should include holds too, right? To get more "accurate" results for middle relievers (who regularly get tagged for blown saves but are rarely eligible for actual saves).

  2. I go back and forth on that. We actually have a sv % with precloser save opps included on the relief pitching table, but that isn't the version I've seen most often. Basically saves are kind of dumb.
