Well, a .243 career ISO (.540 SLG), half of it played in a great pitchers park, is pretty darn powerful. 449 career homers, 34th all time, is premier in my book.
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.
