    Raisor, but there is not quantitative component in your formula for a guy like Jose Guillen who not only has talent but plays angry
    Plays pretty a pretty sloppy outfield at times too, made a big mental error yesterday and the other day lost the ball in the sun with his sunglasses on top of his hat.. Bob Brenly was disgusted.

    Feast or famine with Jose, who increased his game with diving over the plate and upped his HBP rate quite well too.

    That said the Nationals are marketing him, not as the Latin Jimmy Piersell though.

    The Reds were +9 last year, bad BA w/RISP, bad bullpen and all...

    You don't think Bowden can find a way to get approval for some deal making? I gotta think he finds a way.

    (don't get me wrong I'm not a huge Bowden fan but thought he made great move getting Griff to Cincy and I'd prefer him to DannyO anyway.)

    He's got a little Roberto Clemente in him too (the arm, the use all fields hitting, the motor). And his voice sounds like Tony Montana from Scarface.

    I think Raisor had a hand in both Pyth Thm of BBall and Runs Created formula.

    He's scrappy that way.

    Even WITH the Nats (+9) and the Diamond Backs (+7), the average deviation is only +/-2.2 wins.

    I'll take that...

    4. Pyth Thm of BBall
    5. Runs Created Formula

    No.

    He's pretending he missed it, though.
