Sure, but every team has a different set of needs. A team that has a massive hole in at SS who is in win now mode will value him differently than a team that is also in win now mode but who has a capable replacement in the wings.
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.
