Re: Indians trade Broussard
Very smart deal by Cleveland. Martinez was getting run on like crazy and Shoppach can step right in. The Angels were after Broussard as well. With Hatteberg locked up for next year, looks like the Pirates have a captive audience for Casey and Wilson.... pardon the pun.
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.
