Because Jeremy Accardo utterly and completely shit the bed last night.
That was painful.
It's worth remembering, though, that even good closers blow games. Henke, Ward and Ryan all blew five or six games in the run of a year, and last night's ninth inning BP session against the Devil Rays was Accardo's fifth.
But you still have to figure that A.J. Burnett wanted to grab Accardo by the mullet and tear it out, strand by strand, after watching his brilliant eight inning, one run, eight strikeout night go for naught.
