Re: Youkilis wanted to play for the Reds
Youkilis with a bit more power is the kind of hitter Alonso might become... Good to see the Reds finally appreciating the value of a guy who can just plain ol' hit.
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.
