When looking for reasons why baseball fans have placed less emphasis on a pitcher's won-loss record, search no further than Saturday's Twins/Rays game.
In that game, starter Trevor May threw 104 mostly good pitches, leaving to a 3-3 tie with two outs in the seventh after surrendering the lead that inning. The score could have been 7-3 Twins at that point if they had capitalized on opportunities, but alas it was not.
Brian Duensing came in and threw one pitch to get one out. The Twins took the lead in the seventh inning, and Duensing got the win for 1/104th of the work May put in.
Takedown Dan Le Batard, writing for ESPN.com, wrote a strong piece about the NFL's lack of integrity and Roger Goodell's lack of credibility.
