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
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:
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.
