Re: Strike out = to any other out?
Back to the strike out thing for a second.
Let's use a real life example, shall we? Sean Casey and Adam Dunn. I think we can all agree that they were the two best offensive players on the Reds this season.
If you look at just their Batting Average and K numbers though, you'd think that Casey was head and shoulders better then Dunn. (324 vs 266 and 195 vs 36). But if you look at Runs Created (which, as has been proven is +97% accurate), they are nearly identical (Dunn 110.04 per 600 TPA and Casey 104.8 RC per 600 TPA). Why is that? It's because they're OBP/SLG are nearly identical:
If this doesn't show how useless BA and K's are vs OBP/SLG, then I give up.
