The fact is that BA and RBI aren't very good measures

Nonsense. There are merely better measures. Show me a guy who hits .330 and I will show you a good hitter, regardless of his secondary numbers. Show me a guy with 139 RBI and I will show you a good hitter regardless of how he got them.

Show me a .330 hitter with 139 RBI and I will show you Miguel Cabrera.

I live in Ann Arbor.

Shut the front door!

We totally need to get a beer one day. I want to tease you to your face about still posting at PA after a decade.
