No more blown saves, okay?

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

I’m worried. And the reason is simple. Just look at the lineup today and tell me you’re not worried.

It’s a Jake Arrieta start! You know what happens during Jake Arrieta starts!

BLOWN SAVES.

[FOG HORN OF BLOWN SAVES BLATTS IN YOUR EARS]

OH GOD THE BLOWN SAVES.

I know, I know, it might not happen. The offense could give Arrieta a massive lead. Or the opposite could happen and the Cardinals could have a million runs. Either way, I just don’t want another blown save. From anyone. Well, Hector Neris especially, but it applies to everyone.

So no blown saves. Let’s end our baseball games like adults, okay? Please? Please please please please please I can’t take a blown save against the Cardinals I just can’t, I’m begging you Phillies.
