Re: James Shields and Wade Davis traded to Kansas City
For the way some people talk about the value of relievers around here, I'm surprised Wade Davis is being basically ignored. He's got an interesting profile. Big tall guy with a decent fastball, but who thrives on his curve. Came up fairly well touted, but wasn't very good as a starter. However, after a move to the bullpen he became dominant. Sound like anybody else we know?
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.
