This is why Johan should hate everybody and everything ever

Postby DK » Sat Aug 02, 2008 10:16 pm

Assuming that he
a) Deserves a win if he gives up less than or equal to 2 earned runs in at least 5-6 innings OR less than or equal to three runs in 7-9 innings, OR
B) leaves a game with a lead

& he
B) Deserves a loss if he gives up 4 or more earned runs in any start, regardless of IP, AND leaves without the lead

using these two (in my opinion very reasonable) guidelines,
santana should have:

a 19-4 record.

he is nine and seven.

NINE AND SEVEN.

NINE AND FREAKING SEVEN.

Okay, so my system is obviously imperfect and it's actually highly unlikely that Santana would ACTUALLY be 19-4 because no bullpen is absolutely perfect and no offense always scores 4+ runs, but COME ON. Santana should be the frontrunner for the Cy Young award right now.

And he's nine and seven.

God I hate how much I love my team.

I'm sure he's not happy about it either. Is it bad that I'm more concerned with how he feels than actually losing the game?? :-{

No, because honestly I'm too frustrated with our bullpen to care about our W-L record at this point.

We don't deserve to win the WS. We barely deserve to make the playoffs if that. And none of that - at ALL - is Johan's fault.

Johan should hate everybody and everything that thinks wins determine how good a pitcher is at baseball.

The "W" stat is probably the most flawed stat in the game.

I feel like this has been a perennial problem with the Mets in recent years.

Considering that the Mets have had a winning record for the last four years I'm going to say no, that's not what we're talking about. The snark is not really appreciated.

The bullpen needs a total revamping and as much as I hate the dreaded Joe Morgan word our offense needs to be more consistent.
