Others I'm missing?
I would definitely prefer Gathright to Constanzo. He can make contact, run and field. I'm sure Mike is a nice, but he's pretty clearly not a major-leaguer. Garthright may be replacement level, but that's a step up from Constanzo.
One guy you didn't mention is Paul Janish, who is showing that when the BABIP gods stop punishing him he can be a useful player.
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.
