What’s your favorite stat?

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Absolutely nothing flowing to the writing circuits today, so, here’s the lamest, most basic-ass question that I’m ripping from DRays Bay.

I’ll start. My favorite stat is RBI. Mm-hmm. Runs batted in, baby. That’s where it’s at. There’s no better stat besides batting average that measures the true value of a hitter. If a hitter doesn’t have RBIs, they’re garbage and should quit baseball. Can’t win if you can’t score, and you can’t score if you can’t drive in runs! Wooo wooooo (train sounds) all aboard the RBI train!
