We've targeted pitchers like this for years trying to catch another Pete Schourek. Other than Jimmy Haynes costing FCB his firstborn, they haven't really worked out. Maybe we ought NOT target the type of pitcher that is Randy Wolfe.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
