Yes, not a biggie. However, I just want to be sure that the numbers were accurate relative to 1-run games and I was understanding the meaning of a 1-run game from your post regarding that. I think the REDS good record relative to 1R games is a good reason for the run differential thing (winning record, but a negative run diff.). Obviously they win a lot of close ones and tend to lose by larger gaps than they win by.Originally Posted by WVRedsFan
I still have to wonder about the impressive streak that took place immediately after the extension. But it is really all moot IMO. We have all heard of "a contract year" for players in pro sports and have seen them get better statistics (Kevin Mitchell immediately comes to my mind!), but I do not think an extension causes ANY manager to manage differently than they did prior to the extension.
