Re: Paul Daugherty says Reds are seriously pursuing Joe Blanton
Blanton isn't a bad pitcher at all, but he's not a great fit for us and is primed to cost more than he's worth. That said, Beane has shown he's willing to go for volume, so there might be an option here using guys like Juan Fransisco, Matt Maloney, and Tyler Pelland -- or something like that.
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.
