Re: First AFL Box score
It definitely screams small sample size. Doug, have you noticed any difference in his approach which might help explain that gap beyond mere "luck"? Perhaps he's focusing more on putting the ball in play and less on hitting for power, not getting behind in the count, etc.
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.
