Employees and Baseball

I was watching the Braves game last night and the announcers were discussing the starting pitchers. The top starter has been hurt but will soon come back to the regular pitching rotation, and the question that the announcers posed was who would be the pitcher to get knocked out of the rotation. They answered "It's not a matter of who has better stuff, it's a matter of what can you give me consistently?" Isn't that true about employees as well? At Matchstic, we have interviewed a number of incredibly talented designers, but at the end of the day it's a matter of "What can you give me consistently?"
