I s'pose that's why they call them big things.
Absolutely. Guys famous for doing the little things are usually only famous for it because they can't do the big things. Little things are nice and pleasing and can help steal a win here or there, but the big things (pitching, competent defense, 3 run homers or more appropriately OPS) are what really win games day in and day out.
Little things are the cherry on top of the ice cream, but you gotta have the ice cream for it to matter.
