Re: Knowing the season is only 3 games old
Statistically significant? Heck no. Encouraging? Definintely. While I wouldn't try to project anything, 20 walks to 21 strikeouts is a good sign if nothing else.
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.
