Re: 6/25/12 - Reds vs. Brewers
If the Brewers are going to pinch hit for Gallardo, why not force their hand by walking the #8 hitter to get to the pitcher's spot?
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
