In my mind, you turn the first game into a "2 at bats for Reds" vs. "1 at bat vs. Chapman for Phils" and you really like your chances...
I think you're confusing real world logic and Dusty logic. I agree with you. I was being somewhat facetious, but I would not be the least surprised to see Dusty "save" Chapman for the scheduled game.
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.
