Yes. Especially if you want King Felix to win the Cy Young Award with less than 13 Wins! Woo-hoo!
The reality is that you had one reliever get charged with 3 runs, another reliever who allowed a hit to get the game tied, a third reliever that faced one batter, and a fourth reliever that saved the game though he allowed one run.
According to MLB, Felix Hernandez gets no credit for the win, even though he did more than each of the other pitchers. He gets a “no decision”. That is, Felix decided nothing at all.
Of course, when it comes time to aggregating things at the end of the year and for a pitcher’s career, all these weird games, these exceptions, become a blur, because we figure they all cancel out, and all we are left is whatever it is that MLB is counting officially. Well, that’s all that’s left for those who subscribe to only the official record.
How about MLB takes the lead here and instead of sticking to the legal definition, they create a definition that’s a bit more flexible, not so much for my sake, but for the sake of others who don’t spend more than two seconds thinking about this, but spend two decades defending it.
