Read This Now - Wins Are A Silly Stat

You don't have to take my word for it though, Joe P lays it out so much better than I ever could...

After Wednesday's non-win -- Reyes made sure on this one by giving up back-to-back doubles to start the game and five runs in three innings -- reporters surrounded the man of the hour. The whole scene was bizarre. Hey, here's one of those kooky joke stats: What pitcher has made the most consecutive starts without pitching at least five innings and exiting with his team in the lead in a game that the team ends up winning?

And people make fun of BABIP. Sheesh.
This is a rare instance of RTN where we gave you the conclusion.  Joe P is the best sports writer working these days (and one of the better writers out there period) for my money, so make sure to check out how he tells the story.
