Wasn't it the Padre fans in the Rivera/Hoffman thread who claimed how much tougher Hoffman had it in the NL West?
Yes it was. But they stopped with that argument after someone posted some almost comical stats to compare the two. The NL west is a joke.
another point that was missed by you guys .... my god .. I think you all have ADD too somtimes ... I kid I kid, well maybe not in strasils case ... (as soon as I saw that post i knew he was going to show up how funny)
The point was ... That all of the teams are competitive in the NL West. Outside of Colorado, Trevor Hoffman does not get to close against the annual doormats known as the Orioles, Rays and Jays
Well that wasn't a very smart post now was it?
Blue Jays 775 8/30
D-Ray 750 12/30
Orioles 729 15/30
Rockies 740 14/30
D-Backs 696 23/30
Dodgers 685 26/30
Padres 684 27/30
Giants 649 29/30
IMHO it would be easier to close against teams that can't score runs.
which of course leads to alot more one runs games now doesnt it ..
I need a "what the hell are you trying to say?" emoticon. Maybe this one Or this one
Are you saying that it is harder to close against the Giants with the second worst offence in the ML, the Padres with the 4th worst offence and the Dodgers with the 5th worst offence then it is to close against the Jays, Rays and O's with the 8th, 12th and 15th best offences respectively?
If that's your argument (and I believe that it is) then by extrapolation it is easier to close against the Red Sox with Manny and Papi up in the ninth and the Yanks with A-Rod and Sheff up in the ninth then it is to close against the Little league Allentown Tigers (who are notoriously bad hitters, I'm talking NLWest-bad).
It's logic like this that makes it very difficult to trade with you and impossible to discuss politics
