Pitcher W/L shouldn't be placed with another player, it should be abolished. Teams get wins and losses.
Then ( ...@ last... ), U now have the perfect 'exit' strategy
to both this forum, & your nagging pursuit of 'wins' here...
Go slam that 130-ish 'game-winning' Cleveland T-E-A-M
into every open & theme league that U possibly can, -&-,
watch the wins pile-up... Sky-high totals in the 'W' column,
4-sure, because it's the T-E-A-M w/ the most wins, right ?
Whatever U do, ---don't come back 2 this thread, typing &
letting us know of the 'gold-mine' win theories of yours...
Pitchers, & their real life W/L totals, have every sound -&-
rational basis for statistical prominence, ---as does every
goalie in hockey, who also built seasons of great careers
wherein the W/L records were admired on a taller podium
than dang near ALL other statistics...
Got nothing other than a refusal to ignore the wisdom of the
guys in charge back in the 1800's, & those in charge during
the 1900's, as well as those in charge now, who maintain a
''Staus-Quo'' about the W/L records, yearly...
This ain't football, or basketball, where a player gets a type of
statistical credit for a 'Win'... This is baseball, the ONLY game
where the defense starts the play w/ the ball... That does NOT
even happen in a game with a puck... In that situation, U gotta'
think differently about the pitcher...
The ONLY baseball team that matters in any league, is the only
team that will win the only game that will matter most, -their last,
& all other teams will LOSE their last game of that season here,
so, --- get every owner 2 pick the team w/ the most T-E-A-M wins,
& U will still have absolutely nothing, ---except for your blindness.
