I'm not sure it will be any more of a concern than it was the last two years.
Fair point. Best to just get rid of him now regardless.
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.
