I think 3 of the 4 would keep them on the phone. But wouldn't be at all surprised if it took all 4 to get it done.
If I were the Reds, I'd be pitching Chapman and Hamilton for Stanton today.
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.
