The difference between a healthy Gonzalez and Hairston is probably on the order of 15-20 runs, 20-25 between Gonzalez and Keppinger. Offensively the differences aren't likely to be very large.
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.
