Re: Pick your pen
I'm curious why people are assuming Parra would get the LOOGY gig when Jose Arredondo was just as effective against lefties last year and has been dominant against them for his whole career. Is it just not "traditional" enough?
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.
