Re: Player A or Player B
I think the point is that EE carries a much higher BA than Dunn, has three times as many doubles, and half the walks.
Does that make him the more productive player?
The answer is no. EE has exactly two more RBIs than Dunn. And, except for HRs, the remaining stats are relatively even, with Dunn gaining the edge on slugging because of the HRs.
This certainly proves that BA is highly overrated when judging a player's worth. Yet, how many times do you hear a player's worth berated because of BA (especially Adam Dunn).
