I have mixed feelings, but Junior will get a shot and the Reds will get something out of it. It would be nice to head down to the Cell and have somebody to root for.
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.
