I found the Vultures song choice funny because "Vulture" is the term used for a reliever that blows the save and winds up getting the "W" anyway. And 12/13 is the "Bring in the Dude" show. I don't know if a manager ever used that term to summon a closer, but that would be pretty sweet. Did I forget to mention, forget to mention, that Eric Gagne 2003 was one helluva closer?
I’ve also heard the term “Vulture Save,” for when a closer needs rest (eg they’ve gone three straight games) and another random reliever gets the save instead. But that’s more of a fantasy baseball term, where you care who gets the save instead of “they won.”

Eric Gagne was a roided up fat sweaty goggle wearing bulldog with one of the nastiest sliders I’ve ever seen.
