ESPN illustrates the fatal flaws of the save, how it influence managers to make bad choices, and how it could be fixed.

This is exactly what I've been talking about when I've said the save is a dumb stat (at least insofar as it is currently used) that makes managers do dumb things.

and an insider article about bullpen mismanagement

also the first article links to this:
