The Difference 3-Base's Actions Make

Let me play Devil's advocate here for a minute.
Dig if you will a picture....
The running count is up to +4 in a 1D game. Dealer has 6 showing. Player's all stay, except for 3rd base, who has a hard 16. 3rd base hits, drawing a 10 and busting his hand.
The count is now +3...
The dealer turns over his down card, a 10 and now has 16. (count is now +2). He draws a 3 to beat the rest of the table.
How can it be said that the actions of the other player's don't matter, when the play of the person on 3rd base moved the count from +4 to +3?? (The +3 count is disadvantageous when compared to a +4, correct??)
I welcome your comments, as this was the scenario presented to me.
The answer I gave was, the 3rd base player could have received the 3, bringing the count to +5. This was countered by the fact that at a +4 count, the 3rd base player is more likely to receive a 10 card (thus bringing the count down). Hmmmm....
