Sorry, but I base my decisions on what a guy is likely to do moving forward. What he's done in the past is only relevant insofar as it helps us predict the future. Are they the exact same? No. In a bubble, would I choose Guthrie over LeCure? Probably. Would I trade Travis Wood to get him Guthrie? No.
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.
