If Jay Bruce hits 4 home runs and the Reds lose, how valuable are they to the club? (A clubs goal is to win games)
You rise a good point. Maybe we should only be counting stats that were accrued during games the team won.
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.
