Jerome Holtzman Dead at 82.

Who's Jerome Holtzman? Why he was the official historian for Major League Baseball and is most widely known as the the man who created the save statistic thus poisoning proper baseball strategy and making multi-multi-millionaires out of a select group of relievers who are lucky enough to be chosen at some point for ninth inning duty.

Not to disparage Holtzman, who by all accounts was a fine person who probably never imagined what the save would do to baseball, but man has that stat created massive inefficiencies in the baseball talent market.
