Mazel Tov K-Rod

Francisco Rodriguez is now the all-time single-season saves leader. This means he was the guy lucky enough to be closing for a team that plays tons of close games, so he had plenty of opportunities.

I mean, kudos to K-Rod. It's not like 57 saves are easy to convert. That's a lot of pitching in one season, more innings than closers are used to. It's definitely an excellent feat. But like wins, saves are a difficult category to measure, perhaps even more so. After all, you can't rack up saves unless your team is winning, and not just winning, but playing tight games. There's a truckload of luck in achieving such a milestone.

But K-Rod was the recipient of this luck, and now he's got the record to show for it. He did his job, and he did it very well. Congrats to K-Rod on this great achievement. May your free-agent suitors reward you in kind.
