It appears that the best combo to my eyes is SP and RP each being near or above the top 10

2013 is similar to 2003 in terms of overall SP

Most of the playoff teams were pretty well balanced from a ranking standpoint.  As much as we begged for offense during the Vlad years, the team was pretty respectable compared to other teams. 


By and large, this gets filed in the 'no shit sherlock' bin, but it begs the question for 2014


If the team trades away a couple of offensive components from the major league club like Trumbo and Kendrick or Aybar in order to get some SP, can they be more get into the top 10-15 and will the offense still be good enough?

When your 15th or higher in more than two categories your probably not going to be a good team. It's a team sport you need all of your 40 man roster and more to help you win. When we are only 2-4 deep in good players in the line up and 2 deep in pitching with good players you are not gonna win many games

Great, another Jeff Mathis thread.


It's not a coincidence that the Halo's pitching went down the tubes when he was traded. I predicted our team ERA would jump at least one run on his departure.


Catching is intangibles first, defense second, and offense third. Guys like YOT (stat geeks) just don't get it.
