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.
This thread would be funnier if the Cardinals weren't currently yet again mowing through the playoffs.
I need a drink.
Shhh...this is the one thing he Isn't going to tell his son.
Good chance the Reds will be looking for a pitching coach.
Lead Baseball Inspector.
He will lead a group of trainees in a new group of baseball inspectors. They will attend every MLB game and make sure there is no funny business. Measure the height of the mound, make sure the balls are rubbed the right way, fireworks are not set off if the wind is blowing in the stadium, and make sure that every MLBers' sons are told the story in the way to make their dads look like heroes.

His press conference will be halted during the middle of his tearful speech when Chris discovers the podium in the wrong height and decides to spend 30 minutes yelling at the intern who set the room up.

I'm torn when it comes to Carpenter. Probably the most annoying person in baseball since I've started following the game but sometimes it is so absurd all I can do is laugh. Perfect example last night as someone was dancing on the visitor's dugout in a bear suit and Carpenter is on the top step staring down the bear. Absolutely hilarious how sincerely pissed Carpenter looked.
