Braves win by 10, Hawks by 27. What a night for ATL!

Very small sample but still fun to say. Braves lead the majors at hitting with runners on.

Grilli 2, Kimbrel 0 for those who care to keep score.

This is really starting to prove my theory that closers with lots of saves is more a product of a good bullpen that holds leads for the closer to have opportunities.

Last night for example. Grilli could have come in and allowed a run and still got a save. ERA of 9.00 and he is the hero, even though he is the only guy who allowed a run all night. Miller would have bested him with 5 scoreless innings and got no credit for anything.

Proves to me that the save is the stupidest statistic in all of sports. It should be a team statistic, not an individual award.
