+5 over the pythagorian record for the Padres was the best in the NL. Padres were also 29-20 in 1-run games. No one hit over 18 homeruns. One player hit over .300 (.301). One player got 500 at-bats. He actually did a lot (I know, barely over .500) with what he had.


Pythagorian, shmythagorian. All that matters is winning. The job Bobby did rebuilding on the run and Guillen taking a decent, but not great team all the way like he did are the reasons they won.

Not some dodgy meaningless stat.......

(not knocking you david ;-) )


I completely agree!



"Yeah, I know how it works. But there are far too many tangables in baseball. So for example, a team may win more close games than they should have, but how much of that is down to the manager/coaching staff getting the best out of their hitters, or bringing in the right relief pitcher at the right time? You know, the things you can't measure. Like taking your chance on rookies and getting them to perform......

Baseball isn't played on paper, thank god....."

I completely agree again!


Very nicely said rotterdam_82!! ;-D
