Jack you're such a stat guy, surely you know that kind of WAR is crazy.


Their current 3rd/4th/5th guys are all have negative WAR. Fernandez had a 4.2 last year. So, even with the WAR stat, 5 more wins is possible..and I don't believe WAR would truly predict an alternate reality.
A game of inches.

LA Angels loaded the bases, down 7-3 in the ninth. Scored 3, loaded the bases again, and then lost.

The Orioles were 1 for 17 with men in scoring position, and their starter entered the game with an ERA over 7.5. His ERA got worse. Yet, the Orioles managed to win in extra innings.
The Orioles are now 12-2 in extra inning games and lead the majors in that statistic.
Only 1.5 games out of the wild card, and the dreaded Yankees come to town.
Yikes
A win by the Nationals vs Philadelphia combined with a win by Atlanta vs Miami gave the Nationals another Division championship.

It was somewhat of an anticlimax and, as the Atlanta victory was 90 minutes after Washington victory (it went into the 11th inning), the Nationals manager, Dusty Baker was taking a nap when the 'big moment' arrived.

The Nationals are, 88-55. Miami, in 2nd place is 68-75, which is a pretty sad record for a 2nd place team.
Yup! The NL East is a pretty sorry division, so this was expected. Now to keep focused on some more wins to get home field advantage for the playoff run. Only 4 behind the Dodgers right now.

The Nats played only one of their regular position players yesterday. This team has done a great job on player development. They are very deep in talent.

Absolutely!

Also, Kluber has a better ERA, a better RA, a better WHIP, a better opponent batting average, more innings per start, the same number of wins despite starting 3 fewer games, a MUCH better win-loss percentage, 5 times as many complete games, 3 x infinity as many shutouts...

Don't let the stats get in the way of your Sale argument though DD! Big Grin

Kluber also faces the Kansas City and Chicago minor league teams more than Sale while Sale faces the beasts of the east.

Yup, so don't let stats and location color your sports glasses patespo. Smile


Ha, Toronto, Tampa, and Baltimore are only Beasts to New Yorkers that think they are at the center of the universe.

Just hope your team makes the playoffs, and if they face the Indians, I'll be happy to take another Macdonald from you!

Anybody else remember the 2001 Seattle club that finished the season 116-46 and then fell 4-1 to the Yanks in the playoffs? Nothing matters in the regular season except getting into the playoffs. Indians have had a great run, but it doesn't matter one bit if they don't win the WS.


Or, as Toby Harrah said, "bikinis and statistics are similar. They show a lot, but not everything."

I actually turned off the Yankee game to watch the end of the Indians game. Very exciting! I'm not a fan of the term "team of destiny," but they sure do look like one.


An awesome run, for sure. That said, the Dodgers looked like a team of destiny a few weeks back.

As many have said, all that matters is October.
