Grant Balfour was charged with his second blown save after he allowed one run on two hits and two walks with one strikeout over one inning against the A's on Thursday

It has been a nightmare season through seven weeks for Grant Balfour. This may have only been his second blown save, but his overall numbers are gross. His ERA currently sits at 5.89 and he's actually walked (18) more batters than he has struck out (15.) A removal from the closer's role is rapidly approaching.ANALYST: David Kerr
