Re: Comfortable with Claussen?
Claussen strikes me a classic dependable back of the rotation guy. He's not much of a threat to shut the other guys down, but he's not going to completely implode on you either. On a good day you'll get 7 IP, 2 ER. On a bad day you'll get 5 IP, 5 ER.
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.
