Close this!

A tip of the casquette to Todd at The 500 Level for his piece this weekend on Joey McLaughlin, possibly the Jays' most frustrating closer of all time.

To illustrate how much of a spirit killer McLaughlin was, it's worth noting that while he saved 31 games for the Jays from 1980 through 1984 (which still ranks as 8th on the Jays' all-time saves leader list), he also gave up 36 homers over that period.

So, you know, lay off Accardo just a bit, wontcha?
