I believe he was busy blowing saves for the Phillies in '93. Redeem yourself and discuss Williams' most famous blown save.

I would, but I am not sure when the last time he was on the set with Harold Reynolds was. Awkward sentence warning

Anyone care to guess who had the 2nd highest save total in a season for the Cubs?

Sorry Spriggs, I was too curious and looked it up. While there I decided to look up K/9 seasons. Carlos Marmol (this year) has the 14th best K/9 in a season for the Cubs with a minimum 30 IP (not just relievers, all pitchers).

Wow...So the all-time leaders must be Kerry Wood and other Marmol years (along with a Prior year or 2), don't they? Sutter had a bunch and Lee Smith maybe... a good Clement year or two maybe, Flash Gordon... who am I missing?

Would have never guessed Remlinger in the top 20. Really liked him though! Forgot about the Farns!
