I thought they successfully challenged the idea that 4 one-and-dones aren't enough of a statistical sample to judge.

The best ways to prevent hits are: (1) to strike the batter out, so that he doesn't put the ball into play in the first place and (2) to catch the ball when it is put into play.Wow. No wonder people pay for these insights.:rolleyes:

Just a sidenote, but isn't it nice to finally be among the elite in this category?

Since 1972, there have been twenty-seven teams that made the postseason in spite of having below-average offenses. Of these, seven won the World Series: the 1985 Royals, 1987 Twins, 1990 Reds, 1995 Braves, 1996 Yankees, 2000 Yankees, and 2005 White Sox. All of these teams, except the 1987 Twins, had excellent pitching staffs; it's hard to make the playoffs with a below average offense unless you have an excellent pitching staff.

Those other teams are a bunch of hacks.
