    What do you think about Carl Crawford’s chances of getting traded during the season? What’s the chance he would go to an NL team? Thanks!

    Red Sox fans really need to stop asking about the possibility of getting Miguel Cabrera. You can keep dreaming to yourself, but it isn’t going to happen

    Stop with the Washburn to places other than Minnesota or Seattle….it’s not happening.

  4. it’s always troubling to hear people badmouth wins like it’s a meaningless stat. hard to predict, yes, but certainly not meaningless. what other goal is there for the pitcher and the team besides to win the game? if you give up a few runs while protecting a lead it hurts your era. but if you avoid the big inning and factor in the decision youve ultimately done your job. i think if you have a great era and whip but few wins it shows that you don’t impact the game enough. could be throwing too many pitches and leaving too much to the ‘pen. sometimes you have to pitch to contact to keep your count low and not give away free bases. the goal is to win, not give up x number of runs or x number of baserunners. because of this, i also see no decisions as an important stat.

    this started to make more sense to me with clemens in houston. he would post great numbers but could rarely pitch into or past the 6th, when the game wasn’t even close to being decided. sure he did well while he was in but wouldn’t do enough to claim victory for his team and ultimately that’s what counts.
