Re: Reds one of two teams pursuing Gerald Laird
I don't understand this at all. The grass is greener on the other side, I guess.
Gerald Laird, 28: 1064 AB, .257/.308/.387
Dave Ross, 31: 1095 AB, .226/.312/.443
Well, I guess he hits for a higher batting average. That should make some people happy, even if he's not actually an upgrade. Reds baseball -- gotta love it.
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.
