I've seen two weeks of strong play like this before.
We all want a contender. The question is how you get there. Adding 2 wins to a .500 team isn't contending. And when doing so subtracts production from your team in the future, you're just making it that much harder to contend down the road.
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.
