The NBA is an interesting counterpoint. It lets anything get posted to youtube and is way ahead in terms of social media. Of course, those are both much harder to monetize, but when it comes to using technology to grow the popularity of the game, I'm not sure MLB's approach is the best one out there.
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.
