Notice the big (and lasting) dip beginning in 1973, the year of the DH.

So it's saves and blown saves, regardless when they occur.

It would also be interesting to see a chart including saves, or another one only showing length of saves.

I like these graphs which reveal how much the game is really changing, even though the differences year-by-year are so small one might not notice if one is oblivious to the numbers.

Many of the "dedicated 7th/8th inning guys" enter the game in a save situation, they just eventually get pulled for the closer.
