Re: Reds Sign Miguel Cairo
I'm thrilled with what Cairo has given us, but don't regret my position in the least. He's a 36 year-old utility guy who's a capable, but not good, defender who has put up an OPS north of .720 twice in his career - in 2001 & 2004. Sometimes bad decisions work out well -- it doesn't mean they were good decisions.
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.
