Surprised not to hear this on ESPN

They gave a stat related to closers during the Red Sox-Twins game, but only included from 2004 to the present and no post season. I was curious so I looked on Baseball-Reference:
  • 4 years, 2004-2007-Regular season only, plus 2008 YTD*************
  • Multi Inning Apps. 22
  • ROB 18
  • Multi Inning Apps. 2
  • ROB 16
  • Multi Inning Apps. 55
  • ROB 50
*************** I've never heard ESPN mention these stats when hyping the total save stat, save conversions, or the 1-2-3 closer stat. The above among others, make general comparison of the "total save stat" and save "conversions" inaccurate and irrelevant. I guess it's funny if you're not the one being mischaracterized.
