Re: Paul Daugherty says Reds are seriously pursuing Joe Blanton
Blanton's weighted mean projection from PECOTA (nice memory, BC):
Those numbers suggest a very Arroyo like performance with fewer K and fewer HR. Of course, those projections change with a move to the NL and to GABP.
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.
