The goal of the game is to win, and we did that. I don't think they have ever given points for style in baseball. This isn't figure skating.
True enough. A win is a win is a win and, in that regard, you are 100% right.
But those who came away from that game a little frustrated are not wrong. Chapman would have lost that game had Dusty not removed him. It was just...so to say...a microcosm of what has been a relatively frustrating season to this point for most fans. But you're right - we won, and that's the only outcome that matters.
