Re: Your favorite Jocketty deal?
I voted Chapman because it was both non-obvious (as opposed to the Latos deal, where we had obvious excess talent) and a game changer from a perception standpoint. That signing announced that the Reds weren't messing around.
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.
