I don't think anyone would have travel believing that one.
Regarding Doug's comment about Drew Stubbs, I agree completely about his OPS not being relevant because A.) his defense is so superb, and B.) when he's on base, his speed is enough to make a big difference.
But back to the peripherals thing, there's a reason they're called 'peripherals'. Adam Dunn's peripherals suggest he should be an elite player, but his defense (not a peripheral, am I right?) is so bad that it brings his value down significantly.
Wow, I mentioned Stubbs and Dunn in the same thread about Juan Francisco. I hope this thread survives . . .
