He knows very little about baseball, or how runs are scored. RBI's just happen in a vacuum, with no help from the rest of your team. Votto could hit 40 HR, and only have 90 or so RBI. In fact, Dunn used to do that nearly every year- 40 HR and barely 100 RBI, because no one was on base in front of him. Well, Doc thinks it's because both of them walk too much.
Two words: Joe Blanton
So, Doc's a lot of things, I'll grant you that, but he's not usually right. And he's really, really afraid of admitting that he can be wrong, on occasion.
That's what really turns me off. Everyone is wrong on occasion. Hell, I'm wrong more often than occasionally. Doc can't admit it about sports. He did finally admit that he was wrong about the first episode of Breaking Bad this summer, but that's only after 100% of his readers told him he was wrong.
A little humility is a wonderful thing in people.
