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

Nonsense. There are merely better measures.


Right. That's a better way to put it.

Show me a guy who hits .330 and I will show you a good hitter, regardless of his secondary numbers.

Agree with that too. I was thinking comparatively. Show me two guys hitting .330 and ask me which one is better and I want to see OBP.

Show me a guy with 139 RBI and I will show you a good hitter regardless of how he got them.

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.

Ouch.
