However, under fantasy rules a win is a win is a win. The MR "loophole" needs to be closed in fantasy leagues. The rule is causing a result at odds with the intent of the game, i.e., it rewards a bad performance by a player. Fantasy leagues should have a minimum 5 IP to earn a win . . . problem solved.

yeah good point

40 games into the season, Oscar Villareal gives up a run (and the lead) in one inning of relief work in extra innings and is rewarded with his 6th win of the season, tying him for the NL lead.

Wins are dumb.
