Wins Are Stupid, Walkoffs Aren’t

May 11, 2011

Their awesomeness is equal; their win totals shouldn't be.

Need more proof the “win” stat for pitchers makes as much sense as tits on a redwood tree (which would actually be pretty sweet)? Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum have the same number of wins this season. Thankfully wins are beginning to take a back seat to other, better stats (low win totals didn’t prevent Timmy from getting his two Cy Youngs) but the fact that a guy can throw eight shutout innings, strike out nine and flirt with a no-hitter and be penalized because his team can’t score an effing run is stupid, stupid, stupid.

In other news: walkoffs are fun. Base hits, sac flies, I’m not picky. Just as long as the Giants end up jumping around on the field like a bunch of third graders hopped up on Hi-C and Pixy Stix.

I did a Google image search for "Pixy Stix" and this was the top result. I have nothing else to say.

    Pixie Sticks have to rank right up there with candy cigarettes and Big League Chew for their introducing-children-to-drugs-ness. Where else might you play with paper straws and powder, hmm?

    Although, I prefer to snort Matt Cain.
