Re: Jim Callis Espn Chat
It must really stink to be an Orioles or Blue Jays fan. I would be so depressed if I had to beat the Yankees or Sox to make the playoffs.
It would be interesting to see how the list would look if you ignore the top 5 prospects in each system. The ongoing prospect poll shows me that we've got about twice as many "legitimate" prospects than we had just a few years back.
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.
