I was trapped in the car this morning listening to Boomer and Cartman on the Fan. They had Harold Reynolds on and he said the Yankees were making a huge mistake by moving Joba to the rotation. His logic was jaw-dropping. He said that since the Yankees were 37-9 (or something like that) in games in which Joba appears as a reliever, and since Joba could appear in 50 more games this season as a reliever, the Yankees were essentially giving up 40 wins by moving him to the rotation. In the rotation he might only help win 15 more games.
The erudite Boomer and Cartman complimented Reynolds on putting numbers to their gut feeling about the decision. All agreed it was a historic blunder.
I'm sure Mike and the Mad Dog aren't much better. Just because somebody has numbers, doesn't mean those numbers are right. When oh when are intelligent voices going to appear on sports radio? When oh when am I going to stop listening and just put on NPR?
