    So that means that having Taveras in stead of Stubbs over those 42 games would have cost the Reds just over one win.
    This is what I can't grasp when it comes to these kind of stats. I just can't agree that Stubbs vs. Taveras was only 1 win different. When a pitcher sees Stubbs make a catch that Willy would have been running in on then out and then back in again and played it on the bounce it changes much more than 1 game. I just think the whole team plays off of each other and when one is horrible the others start stinking also.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    Well, to be fair, it was only for roughly 1/3rd-1/4th of the games and only considered offense. Project it out to an entire season and consider defense and the change may be a bit more drastic.

    No, you are not alone.

    But the Reds are really good at going to war with a battle plan chock full of "ifs" , "I hope" and "baring injury".

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
