But the bottom line is, it was a 2 run lead in the 9th. Doesn't matter if the score is 2-0, or 9-7. The win probability for a team up 2 in the 9th is 93.7% I don't blame the offense one bit, in this particular game.
Sounds like the paper is grasping at straws to me. The offense? Geez, give my Rangers a 2 run lead in the 9th every game and I'll be happy. Like you, I couldn't care if it's 2-0 or 9-7, just give us that lead.
Millwood would kill for 2 runs in a game. 0-2 with a 1.29 ERA so far this year.
