Point being that it's virtually impossible for us to say much of anything with any degree of confidence at this point. The most likely circumstance for anybody drafted at this point or later is that they aren't going to make it, let alone make an impact.
Unless we're talking specifically about passing up a guy who was unanimously a 1st round talent who slipped for financial reasons, it's more or less a crap-shoot.
Hard to complain about getting up the middle talent.
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.
