...from Sun Deck homie, texasdave. One of the conclusions:
A pretty straight ahead presentation of why the Reds allowed fewer runs in 2009 vs. 2008 (even though the pitching was worse in 2009) without much "stat salad." Check it out!In 2008 the Reds defense was -42.2 runs compared to the league average defense for 150 games. In 2009 over 150 games they were 46.6 above league average. An 88.8 run improvement for 150 games sounds a lot like a 99 run improvement for 162 games. Maybe it is just coincidence.
