While I would hope Dusty has learned that you don't let Homer do this 4 or 5 times in a row, I think there's something to be said for helping Homer get the confidence that he can reach back for it on #125 should the situation arrive in October. And what better time to do that than when a gopherball makes no difference?
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.
