This is one bullpen that absolutely blows (saves).
Just how many 7 run leads can one team blow in one season?
Greg Aquino boasts a WHIP of 1.75.
Kerry Wood (sulking above) blew his third save of the season and has a dominant 4.81 ERA.
(Editor note: I should update this to reflect Wood's fourth blown save - two in two days - and a new ERA of 5.47 after an outstanding line of 1/3 of an inning, 3 hits, 2 ER, and 1 wild pitch after Saturday's latest bullpen blowfest.)
Luis Vizcaino has walked more batters than has pitched innings.
Jensen Lewis is giving up a home run every 12.75 batters.
Joe Smith's ERA just crossed 6.
And perhaps the greatest gem of all is Rafael Perez as in 18 and 2/3 of an inning he has allowed 32 hits! The WHIP is over 2.4 and the ERA zoomed by 11!
