    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.

    Re: rank the bullpen

    A lot of it depends on the situation.

    If I need one out and runners are on base: Cordero, Rhodes, than Lincoln. Herrera hasn't given up a whole lot of his own runs, but he sure seems to take a batter or two to get settled in.
    Starting out an inning: Rhodes than Herrera than Lincoln, than Cordero who will make it interesting but usually get out of it.

    Overall:
    Rhodes
    Lincoln
    Cordero
    Herrera
    Masset
    Owings
    Fisher

    overall it's not going to be the strength I thought it would be. Lincoln better then i thought he would be but I still don't trust him. Owing is a nice guy but the bottom line is he doesn't have the stuff. At all. It's smoke and mirrors for him and he is lucky to get guys out.

    It'll take a lot more than what he's done so far this year for me to trust Lincoln after the HORRIBLE year last year, bulging disk or not.
