Without a doubt my #1 was the "EE in NOT clutch" homer. What's great about it is that it seemed to be a turning point for Brantley. Marty was really starting to wear off him in terms of being negative. He happily ate crow after that and has been much better to listen to since then.
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.
