Thank you BGRL. All the numbers currently in baseball can
serve a purpose (other than stealing from the beauty of the game), but they are not
the end all be all of player measurement.
BP drives me nuts with his showboating and wreckless disregard for fundamentals but he makes every play he supposed
to make along with many, many plays that no other 2B in the NL (probably MLB) is able to make at all.
