    Was Ron Villone one of them?

    You're pretty warm. He pitched the most innings ever in a perfect season. The previous record was 3 innings, held by 4 different pitchers, but Burton pitched 3⅓ to be all alone at #1.

    OBM got them. Harang, Volquez and Dempster.
    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.

    What do Brandon Watson and Jerry Gil have in common that no other Reds over the past half century do?

    I'm not looking this up, but my guess is that they're position players who have played for the Reds without plate appearances.

    Yes they are, but there's something more specific.

    They were each pinch runners. Did they each steal a base or score a run or something to that effect?

    Pinch runners it is. They each appeared in only one game as a Red, and solely as a pinch runner.

    I vaguely remember the Brandon Watson appearance. I want to say it was against the Brewers.

    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
