This is where u are wrong sfrush90. If u know I have a better chance at winning a game with the pitcher with the higher era u go with the pitcher who will get u the win. U are too concrete. Maybe a pitcher makes the hitters feel more comfortable or whatever strange reason the. Pitcher wins regardless of stats. If a pitcher has won 10 games in a row but gives up 4 a gabe I don't care because at least he's doing enough to win. Maybe his team scored a lot of runs so he pitched just good enough to win. Bit then in a tight game he will give up less. Wins are wins and an example is Robert Horay in the nba. He contributed especially with that shot off of Bibbys deflection. But he also won a ring 7 other times. If I'm a coach I want him over Charles. Winning is winning. The law of attraction is amazing.
