I believe the term is reductio ad absurdem or something like that. Yes, the numbers are meaningless.
The offensive numbers are just marginally more predictive than the defensive ones. What's happened so far this year is just more 50 PA on top of what we already knew.
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.
