Who's the best closer in the game today?
The "save" is one of the more misleading categories for evaluating the true effectiveness of closers. There is too much of a variance regarding the number of outs needed to finish an inning & the position of any runners (If any) upon the entrance of the pitcher.
The major change over the years (For the better?) in the thought process of when to bring in the closer (Beginning or during an inning) is significant.
