All that means is that when we win we crush the competition and when we lose is it's only by a small margin.

"A win is a win, a loss is a loss".

or in the long run the team that can have the biggest disparity in runs scored vs runs allowed will be the best team and right now the reds are just experiencing short term variance.

That's one of those stats that makes me laugh when people talk about how many runs the Reds have scored. Yeah, they've got a bunch of 8-2s and 10-3s. And they've got a ton of 1s and 2s of their own. Extremely inconsistent club at the plate.

well its pretty consistent with regards to success.

2010: every division winner -1 led +/-
2009: every division winner led +/-
2008: every playoff team -1 led +/-
2007: weird year arizona was -20 but won the division (but they proved to suck the next 3 years)
2006: every playoff team -1 led +/-
2005: every playoff team -1 led +/-
2004: every playoff team led +/-
2003: 3 teams made playoffs w/o leading in +/-
2002: every playoff team -1 led +/-


+/- is no guarantee but if you can continue to increase the difference in runs scored vs runs allowed ur team is gonna be very good and more likely than not make the playoffs.

Oh, I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you in principle. Just saying this Reds team has been (IMO) significantly "all over the map" more than typical RD leaders. It's an odd team.

Today is a perfect example so far. My buddy text me last night that he was guaranteeing a Reds shutout today.

i agree there are exceptions and the reds are looking like one with their inconsistency to put up runs or inability not allow runs but just generally the teams that put up the highest differentials are going to put up more wins more than not.

And its not like the reds are running away with the lead in differential its still pretty close.
