I don't think you'll see that latter as a blanket statement. I meant to imply those making excuses on his behalf, ones based in a narrow interpretation of events. Perhaps the phrase "Dusty apologist" would have been more precise.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
