That wasn't an equivocation of Wins vs Quality Starts; that was an examination of the relative prevalence between them in the AL vs NL.
All I've ever and consistently said is that Quality Starts have their own biases that generally tend to get overlooked in discussions of Wins. I don't think I've ever argued which measure is more flawed, simply that they are both flawed, but that the ways in which Quality Starts are flawed correlate to other categories which get scored in fantasy baseball.
In any case, for all the hot air you've blown on this subject and all of the weighing-in you've done, I still have yet to see you make a positive statement on what it is you really believe and what data you believe supports that view. All you do is nit-pick at what other people say which is a much easier, but really pretty empty, way of doing anything (or really, not doing anything).
