You can make up a mid-season or early season drought...you can even make up for a post-All Star drought...but Gabby's non-presence was a problem in that final stretch....
On the OP...I guess when I look at the numbers you ran I agree that Gabby makes a difference...but I would have thought he made a bigger difference than he does...or I guess I think he SHOULD have made a bigger difference.
And I agree with the general sentiment around here...it a whole new ball game and the big dogs have to show their stuff...and Gabby's is supposed to be our biggest dog...
I was saying it was arbitrary to count the last 9 and not the last 13. As we ultimately found out, if we dont win those 4 games, the last 9 would not have mattered.
