OK Marty, I'm with you so far in so much as counting stats are often very misleading....

Ok now you've lost me Marty. In fact, it's going to be hard for me to ever really take you seriously when you say things like this. Basically HRs and RBIs are too flawed for you in light of superior ones that more directly measure a player's contrinution to wins like HTAFP (hustle to and from position)...
