Re: Westbrook signs 3 year extension
Somebody on C Trent's blog just said it was 3/33. Seems a good deal for everybody involved. Westbrook's ERA is gonna float quite a bit since he relies on his defense so much. But after 3 straight years of 200+ IP and better than league average ERAs, I'd say the Tribe did well to keep it a 3 year commitment.
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.
