And 30 games is the same sample size as 162 games, right? And ERA means nothing in respect to SP's right? And the run supporet they get is irrelevent to hwo good they are. Suuuuuure buddy. Yeah.... you sure know what you're talking about....
More so than you obviously.
Let me ask you something. Do you like contradicting yourself?
If the A's are the second best team based on record, then isn't a pitcher with the 2nd most wins the same?
You can't have your cake and eat it too...
Sample sizes this and that, baseball is a game not a math competition. Humans play it out and the better ones win.
Maybe the A's have the best record year after year because the AL West is weaker? It seems like there are only 2 teams that are good at a time in teh AL West. When they face better competition it shows.
The A's will get a big reality check this year. They caught lightning in a bottle with the Big 3 and will see how everything was a mirage. Why is it that the Blue Jays have gone downhill since Riccardi came in? Are his philosophies not working?
Where did I say the A's suck? I didn't so you may want to pull yourself together before you overheat and make irrational statements. If putting words into people's mouth is the only way you know how to make an argument then you may want to take a critical thinking class while your at college, it could serve you well.
For making a positive comment about the A's as my first post in here, I get this crap. I have said time and time that believer of theories should defend their beliefs, which I have no problem with. I believe in good old scouting and I am defending my stance. It was a civil discussion until LBJ acted like Nixon.
