Re: the runs scored/allowed theory
I want to believe.
The notion that Milton could not possibly replicate his 2005 performance is enticing. I also like hearing people pump up Belisle as the answer to the #5 hole. Meanwhile, Ortiz is gone and Harang is poised for a breakout season.
Now if someone would repost those rosy numbers showing how the team ERA plummeted after Gullett left, we'll have typed up a very good pitching staff.
