I've Got a Question for You

Which is more important to a great baseball team, pitching and defense, or offense?

pitching and defense, for sure. ideally, though, you'd like for all three to be well balanced.

Without one it all crumbles.

(Of course, American League SUCKS with their DP, but let's not go there.)

Pitching and defense.

Keep the other team from scoring, at all costs.

Forgot to add that it helps when your friggin' manager/pitching coach/hitting coach knows how to handle his players.

Oh. And I don't think the American League sucks.

I was surprised at the feedback; I thought you all might not care about baseball. I'll write an entire post soon so I can spew more wisdom on the subject.

dover--you can only pick ONE, silly. Somehow, though, you ABSOLUTELY nailed the correct answer to the secret, unanswered question. The American League is vastly inferior, and an important reason is that damn Designated Hitter. Worst idea ever.

bre--*sigh*

anon--I sense a disturbance in the Force. Have a beer.

Offense wins games, defense wins championships!

I thought you were an sports guy, come on!

offense - unless you score, nobody wins.

Defense. It can make up for crappy pitching and lousy offense. But that's just my take...

Lefty,

Just discovered your blog. I like it. Keep writing!

So I own two Fantasy baseball teams this year, making me a complete expert, right? My take is, ya gotta have the offense. Without hits and runs, you cannot win the game. Yes, your starters, when they get slammed (and they will) can loose you the game, but even if your pitchers' ERA is 0.00 and you have no hits, you can't win.

Thanks for the compliment, RFSJ. You'll get my take on the question this week.

Scoring is a life principle that is also a baseball principle!
