Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: 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.

"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said.

That's an amazing statement."
Tale of two closers. Fail and dominate. Reds win. Up 2.5. Life is good.

Keep building onto this lead!
