what makes no "logical sense whatsoever" (again) ,and is the point of this thread, is that you'll acknowledge strikeouts are GOOD for pitchers but you contend they are not BAD for hitters.
You're trying to say that there is a positive correlation between a hitter's strikeouts and his offensive contribution??
Don't forget to include pitchers and their at bats.
Your Bosox fact is what it is. But strikeouts is NOT the only variable at work with that example.

I showed you a team that stuck out more than almost anyone else, yet they scored more runs than anyone else. The Yankees were 22nd in strike outs and 2nd in runs scored. San Francisco struck out more than anyone else, yet they were 7th in the big leagues in runs scored.
