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.
Far and away the IP leader in the NL over the last ten years. What a great trade by Wayne K.
Hasn't sunk in yet, won't be real until I see him in an Arizona uni. Very sad to see him go, an unbelievable trade, one that put franchise on track to respectability. I'll be there when he goes into the Reds HOF.
Good luck to BA in Arizona. He should do well in the NL west with those big ballparks to pitch in. BA had become one of my favorite current Reds. I liked his style of pitching and his up front approach about everything in general. IMO the Reds are going to miss that 200 innings pitched this season. I don't see anyone filling in that many innings. I think they should have gave him QO and I believe he would have taken it. But its not my money so its easy to say that.

I wish him well, and am really grateful for what he accomplished with this franchise. I would actually hope to come to Cincy for his Reds HoF induction someday.
