Giants Bullpen has Most Blown Saves of any Playoff Team in MLB History
It's no secret the San Francisco Giants bullpen has had a lot of trouble this season. But despite a 57% save percentage the Giants managed to reach the post season. And in an elimination game tonight against the Chicago Cubs their bullpen failed them again, blowing a 5-3 lead going into the top of the ninth inning.
According to ESPN and Elias Sports the Giants have 30 blown saves this season, which is the most of any team to make the playoffs in MLB history.
