You keep hanging onto this "there's no way to know if they win more games", yet you also claim the bullpen is improved making the Reds better. Can you prove that this improved bullpen will lead to more wins? Nope, according to you, "no one can possibly know." If the Reds started Castro and Clayton every game and replaced Harang and Arroyo with Joe Mays and Kyle Lohse, could you prove that they wouldn't win more games. According to you, "no one can possibly know." But I bet you believe that keeping Harang and Arroyo in the rotation will lead to more wins. Why? Because better players lead to more wins. Throwing out the old "you can't prove the unknown" is basically denying that better players lead to more wins. And we all know that better players DO lead to more wins. So we can please lay to rest the "no on can possibly know" line? I do know that playing better players will lead to more wins.Originally Posted by guttle11
Oh, and they were winning MORE games when EdE was playing everyday early in the season.
