Re: So, the Dodgers are insanely rich
This is why the Reds gave Joey Votto a 10 year extension. In a few years, $20MM/yr is going to look awfully 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.
