Don't confuse how well they've hit so far with how good they are and will be in the future. Chris Shelton once set the world on fire for 6 weeks. It happens every year. It doesn't mean your team should have signed Chris Shelton.
That said, Miguel Cairo does not belong on a major league roster.
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.
