Ones that are lost because players that won't make the team screw up. These don't matter, because it won't reflect the team when the season begins. (See: Today's Sox vs Brewers game and Edwin Almonte's giving up 5 runs)

Ones that are lost because players that WILL make the team, and are an important part of that team screw up. These DO count because this does refeclt on the team when the season begins. (See: yesterday's ass-whupin' of the Cubs when Gordon and Fassero gave up a combined 9 runs)/

Food for thought.

Didn't cost us the game did it?

Say if we lost by a run, then yes, that would be a bad ST loss.

It would be a bad loss, unless of course Clayton ended up not making the team. If it were up to me, he would've been gone after the horrible first half he had last season. How anyone could struggle that much is beyond me. He was so bad that people were comparing him to former Pirates' second baseman Carlos Garcia, who lost his ability to hit once he was traded to the Blue Jays.
