    I think actually get caught knowing the difference between those two is getting busted. At least now I appear to be someone who actually dated a girl in high school.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I said "appear". Don't worry, I had a worse OBP in High School than Willy Taveras.

    And I have no self esteem and rightfully so.

    Yea....that was pretty neat.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
