Ross Ohlendorf's Won-Loss Record Is Irrelevant

New, 27 comments

Dear writers who obviously don't pay much attention to baseball,

Won-loss records are a terrible indicator of a pitcher's value. Anyone who has read anything about baseball in the past ten years knows that. Using Ross Ohlendorf's won-loss record as the sole piece of evidence to argue that it's crazy that Ohlendorf won his arbitration case does not endear you to anyone who's actually paying attention. Actually, it's just a cheap stunt designed to appeal to people who aren't. Personally, I would hate to think I spent my life pursuing cheap stunts. So if I were you, I would stop doing that.

Thanks!

Charlie
