But you have to prepare as well as possible for that contingency. In the playoffs...you're effed. However, if you can patch it together for 10 games in the regular season you're fine and it's not a big deal. If you're backup is so out of game shape that you're looking at 2-8 or something, that's a big deal.
Maximizing production over an 82 game schedule does not necessarily mean going with no. 1 every time you can.
