Jonathan Papelbon......243
Mariano Rivera.........203
Billy Wagner...........183
Francisco Rodriguez....176
Bryan Harvey...........162

Now let us know when Pap ever throws 70 IP in a season and we can discuss him as an elite closer.

Last night was the first time in his career that he gave up a walk-off home run

(Kudos to House that Dewey Built for the factoids)

It says he had a walk-off HR in the game below. What he actually did was hit an HR (when his team had an 8-4 lead), and then the game was called due to rain.

I noticed this because one of the announcers said that yesterday was Thames' second career walkoff HR, and then Thames later said that it was his first.

That means that last week there were 6 players with active streaks of at least 280 games!

Franklin remarkably (for his skill set) hasn't allowed 4 runs since he became a full-time reliever in 2006.
