If Dusty thinks he needs an ace reliever to protect a 3 run lead against the bottom of the order, then I expect we'll see Chapman protect a 4 run lead against the middle of the order next time we're in that situation. Let's see what happens.
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.
