Re: Get Redman
I still see a complete inability to miss bats, average control, and an average GB/FB ratio. Is he a better #5 starter than Joe Mays? Yes. Milton and Claussen, maybe. If we are going to trade for somebody, the object should be to improve the team. Lateral moves which cost us prospects are not intelligent.
Eric Milton in May:
20.2 IP (3 QS), 3.48 ERA, .235 OAVG, 12 K, 3 BB
One decent month does not a good pitcher make.
If Redman was on our squad, I certainly put him in the rotation. But I would not give up anything of value to acquire him.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
