Re: 5/13/12 - Reds vs Nationals
I rag on Dusty all of the time, but tonight he brought his closer in to the game down 1 run. Maybe he was just getting work in and maybe it wouldn't have mattered, but I liked knowing that Dusty was still acting like the victory was possible.
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.
