Re: Quiet on the WMP front.
It doesn't matter if Wily Mo Pena spent 25 hours a day, 8 days a week this offseason working on his defense and pitch recognition. If he still is a poor defender and can't hit a curveball, then all the work ethic in the world really doesn't matter... That ethic has to translate to improvement for it to have real value.
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.
