Re: Do the Reds see game 1 of the NLCS?
I think we lose. Sorry, but Matt Cain is one of the best pitchers in baseball and we have a mediocre offense. I like Latos, but I like Cain more. I see a team that's pressing hard led by a guy who's clearly not 100%. My call is Giants 4-1.
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.
