    DanO would have done better if...

    ...the pitchers he signed were told to "pitch to contract."

    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.

    Hey, that really works! GABP is a fair ballpark, so you make them hit flyballs to the outfield, let the stellar defense take care of it out there. That would work out well. Also, who cares about OBP? If more players that DanO brought in would have had that attitude, they wouldn't pressure themselves into taking walks, and crappy stuff like that. Finally, the management should wait 10 years before putting a winning team on the field. Those players have to develope in the minors you know. Its a 10 year plan, just wait it out!

    Edit: I forgot about taking the first pitch, YOU MUST TAKE THE FIRST PITCH!!! Otherwise you will fail in the at-bat.
