    Love Workman, but the "W" ???

    He faces one batter, records one out, and gets the Win. It's like the 26 other outs count for nothing.

    I wish we could come up with some other way of recording wins and losses, fractional or otherwise.

    Anyone else got ideas on how it might be done?

    There's no perfect way to do it. 

    But if starters have to go at least 5 innings to get a W relievers should probably have to pitch at least 1 inning.

    What we have is not perfect but it has stood the test of time. Someone may come up with a better system.

    My area of concern is inherited runners scoring. Last night the Yankee reliever, Claiborne, was the third pitcher of the inning--Kuroda, Cabral preceeded him. Kuroda was charged with a run, Cabral with a run and Claiborne 2 as a result of the Salty Slam. Claiborne throws the meatball and only gets two runs charged against his ERA and Kuroda takes the loss.

    In the Sox dugout---Lackey gets chaged with the two runs Breslow surrendered on Cano's double. Granted it could have been worse if Lackey had stayed in the game.

    I guess there is no true justice. It's the luck of the guy in there at the time.

    Still scratching my head about not going after A-Rod, but wanting to pitch to Cano who was 3 for 3 at the time and soon to be 4 for 4. I want a shorter leash for Breslow.
