Re: Javier Valentin overawed by Volquez
I'm not too swayed about any comment regarding a pitcher's stuff the first day of camp. Besides, Valentin is a catcher who isn't very good behind the dish and a pinch hitter with a career .709 OPS. Shouldn't he be focused on justifying his own roster spot?
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.
