    I agree........the Suarez lovers, there are many, will point out 2019’s 49 home runs. Yes, great, earned him $9,535,71, and in 2021 $10,785,714 and in 2022 $11,285,714 and in 2023 $11,285,715 and in 2024 $11,285,715.

    Someone mentioned Chris Davis in a past Suarez thread.

    yes, what a minor detail. 49 home runs in a season. it's only tied for the second-most in reds' history.

    Other than this season, where he's coming off of surgery, and no spring training, can you tell me what was wrong with his previous 5 seasons with the Reds and detail how it's siimilar to Chris Davis?

    In a 3 game series, Bauer/Castillo/Gray gives you a fighting chance (not just a "every team has a chance" chance) for victory.
    Purely semantics, but if every team is beatable, it doesn’t matter what the rotation is for any team. You could have the clone of Tom Seaver pitching every game, but if every team is beatable, then that’s the first and only reason, and the same would be true if you had the 2017 Reds rotation.

    That's a big advantage to the Dodger hitters. This year you have to look deeper into stats because anyone we play in the playoffs and world series not from AL or NL central played a totally different schedule and it's like whole different worlds.
    That’s a good point. However, pitching staffs that face the Dodgers and Padres all the time are going to be ranked low, while pitching staffs that face the Reds and Pirates are going to be ranked high. It’s a chicken or the egg question.

    It is a chicken and egg question. But here's the thing, if you look at each of the 3 pods of teams(AL/NL-east, AL/NL-central, AL/NL-west) you see a very noticeable grouping in the team stats both offensively and defensively. So while the central are all over the bottom of the batting stats, they are bunched in the top of the pitching stats. The other two (regions I guess I'll call them) are top of batting stats and bottom of pitching stats. That tells me that the stats are terribly misleading. Also, teams that play the Dodgers and Padres only play them up to 33 percent of their games leaving 67 percent playing the other which means if their pitching is much better than than the stats say, while they shouldn't be at the top of the stats, they also shouldn't be bunched at the bottom.

    My point isn't that the Dodgers aren't that good, my point is that by playing a schedule in a bubble that doesn't have overlap, you can't really use those stats to make much of a point other than they are better than the other 9 teams their bubble. If the stats showed more diversity within each bubble I might think differently.
