Quote of the Day: Tyler Clippard's unmentionables

May 13, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

“I asked if I could start wearing his underwear. But he said no.”

Washington Nationals’ Craig Stammen on teammate Tyler Clippard’s MLB-leading seven wins.

The rose goes in the front, big guy.

    LOl!! the guy with the most wins, has the most blown saves as well. He’s 7-1 w/l but he’s an 0-5 in saves. I think, I’m pretty sure. Maybe the underwear gets skid marks if he works into the ninth? I’d watch doing that craig s.
    Captcha: no ecstasy

    No, in this case, I Wooden’t Lyketneau!

    You’re correct, he has 5 blown saves. However, blown saves do not necessarily occur in the 9th inning. It basically happens anytime a pitcher enters a game with his team winning but allows the score to be tied or the other team to take the lead. Tyler’s first BS of the season occurred in the 6th inning.
    If I’m reading the stats correctly, he’s allowed 12 of 20 inherited runners to score. Basically, he’s great to start an inning but not so much in the middle of one.
    Thankfully my fantasy team doesn’t care about his blown saves but does care about his wins/strikeouts/ERA.
