I hope he proves me wrong. The playoff game proved that a confident Bailey can pitch anywhere.
Bailey has never been the most congenial guy; I would not be the least shocked to see him take a deal in FA that isn't the biggest but which puts him where he wants to be.
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.
