"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
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.
good grief, stop comparing this guy to guys like mariano rivera. mariano rivera had been one of the most dominant pitchers in playoff history. this is not based on one performance. I must say that is one of the most idiotic comparisons ive ever seen.
you want some positive comments?
arroyo, harang, belisle, and lohse are pitching well.
hamilton looks great.
i have positive things to say, just not about a guy who is hurting their chances of remaining in first place.
difference- HARANG HAS DONE IT BEFORE, and coffey hasn't.
coffey has consistently not pitched well in pressure situations not just this year, but last year as well. you guys will agree eventually, but for some reason you're in love with him right now.
i didn't get this thread going again. Todd Coffey did, it was dying away, and he choked again.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Could this thread be locked, this is going nowhere, mroby won't change his mind and neither will we, it's becoming pointless.
In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.
