However, if Chapman doesn't give up a homerun on Tuesday and if Cozart belted one into the corner tonight, that number is probably 8-8. I only say that to demonstrate how fluid that stat is at this point.
1 run losses are painful, but history says they usually balance out over 162 games. The regular W-L record is simply much more telling.
I agree. I fear that by the time the Reds leave San Diego at the All Star break, we won't want to discuss the overall won-lost record either.
Hope I'm wrong.
