    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    The winning run was scored with two out in the 6th with E Rod on the mound.

    If he had been replaced by Price to start the 6th that run may not have happened. Or Price may have gotten pounded.

    Overall, giving E Rod the hook after the 5th would have been a good call. He looked tired and was not finishing all his pitches.

    Generally true. However, ERod also struck out the last guy in the 5th and got the first two guys out in the 6th before giving up that dinger to Sucre, who came to bat when ERod was at 106 pitches. In his last two starts, ERod threw 109 and 107 pitches.

    Would I vastly prefer to have had Price go out there to pitch the 6th and 7th and keep that 2-2 score? Sure I would. But to me we still had two problems if that happened. The first is the bullpen could not use Kimbrel or Reed for the 8th or 9th or extra innings. The second is that the Sox, except for that semi-miraculous dinger by JBJ (after a walk to Holt, of all people), weren't hitting. We had three innings to tie the game and never came close.
