I just couldn't let this one pass. This argument is flawed to say the least. If he "didn't exactly smack around a competent major league pitcher" then why didn't everyone else have 3 home runs and 8 rbi's? I agree that he will probably never put up those numbers again, but most "competent major league hitters" won't either.
He had a great game and deserves all the credit in the world for it.
