Don't have time for the full rant...

...but wanted to note this anyway. "Wins" are a lousy metric for evaluating starting pitchers. Here's just another little nugget of evidence.

On two consecutive nights, the Red Sox starting pitcher allows five runs in five innings. And the game stories in the Globe aren't even similar.
Wakefield handed an 8-5 lead to the bullpen.

Miller was better this time, allowing five runs in five innings. But that was far from good enough.
