This is a wildly gung ho straw man argument. One _can_ assess if a player
looks ready to rock, when going against any starters in preseason. That is
not any where near the same as claiming a _team_ will do well based
on wins in the preseason. EVERYONE knows this. Too many variables. Some
teams game plan for PS, others do not. SOME teams leave in starters for
longer than other teams, and will obviously be more likely to win. Stop
with the straw man madness.
