And I reiterate my supposition that the Reds at least had an inkling of suspicion regarding Grandal when they included him in the Latos deal. Obviously it made sense from a depth standpoint, but perhaps the Reds weren't valuing him as highly as his performance might have suggested they should.
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.
