Hence my caveat up front. I'd be shocked if they spent even half of their savings. Loria is basically saying, "Look, we gave it the old college try. We can't compete nor be profitable by signing big name players. This can only work if we're cheap."
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.
