    Absolutly, lose a quality bench player so you can carry Drew all year , just because you might lose the D.H. for 0-4 at bats?

    In that case, I'd go sabr and use WAR. That combines both effectiveness and durability. WAR is far from perfect but at least it tries to combine both sides of the coin.

    Anyway, I don't really see the point in declaring one stat more important than another when all of them are available to us for every player. I guess this is a hypothetical exercise I don't see the point in playing.
