This I cannot argue. However, I like "strength in numbers". The number of runs scored is important, but runs allowed gets the nod IMO when comparing the two. And of course defense is important. But when Chapman takes the mound you might get away with a "The King and His Court" defense.
I de-railed the thread! I just cannot believe REDS fans have forgotten the era of Harnisch/Haynes/Graves/etc. The playoff-less era. Bats are sexy. Arms win.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
