We all love the Missile. Let's not pretend as though there aren't concerns about his character.
I agree. If any U.S. born and raised player got 5 speeding tickets in the offseason, one during the regular season and had the stripper issue, you know people would be wary. The fact that he doesn't speak English well has been a saving grace on that front.
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.
