That's such a fundamental flaw in any analysis you can't take it seriously in baseball, in statistics, in anything. So yes, you may know more than I ever will, fine, I'll bite. I will say its obvious that you take that knowledge and then work with horribly flawed premises and "insight" that it really doesn't matter because its just bad reasoning.
Bye for real.
Don't leave, let's discuss. Funny how my "bad reasoning" brings me to the correct outcome. Hmm, the only discussion I remember having about pitchers wins/losses and saves may have been in advocating for John Smoltz to be in the HOF for have 150 wins and 150 saves. I also may have mentioned putting an emphasis on 20 win seasons. You have to understand, I'm serious when I say I was looking at the way Boston was losing, they were playing a lot of undisciplined ball, kind of like this year.
On another note, KC hasn't won a home game this year? Is that right?? That's tough, I'm assuming that some of your lashing out has something to do with you local sports teams not being any good.
