Re: Griffey Jr Traded to the White Sox (Pending Griffey Approval)
I wouldn't be surprised if the deal was just for a PTBNL with the Reds picking up the rest of '08 and the Sox on the hook for the option/buyout.
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.
