I honestly think Aaron Judge's 208 strikeouts should be held against him more than they are. That's just an obscene number to me.

Why is consistency seen as more valuable than someone with peaks and valleys if it all ends up the same in the end?

That's fair. I guess my question should have been "Why IS it more valuable" instead of "Why is it SEEN as more valuable".

Alluding to Yankees bullpen having advantage in close games, but come on. DK was fucking dealing. That was the Astros game to lose and we held on.
