I'm not wishing harm on anyone, and Josh Hamilton seems to have recovered (and for that, I'm very happy for him). Ray King apparently has a weight problem, and I wish better health for him, too.
While I fully appreciate that struggles with weight and food should be taken seriously, I think equating it with crack in a real context is hardly appropriate, or at least fair.
In any case, I don't think we need Ray King.
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.
