Agreed. From what I can decipher, NL offenses consist of bunting and weak hit and runs.

And double switches.

I knew he was joking, and i am pretty sure Art knew, i knew, he was joking. It doesn't make the argument any less stupid.

All I gathered from that post is that the pitching in the NL sucks.

wrveres, where is that list from? That's not the top 20 OPS for instance, unless you're just listing people randomly who hit well. Like it's missing Josh Hamilton at #1.

Sorry, not related to this thread just got confused when I saw Kelly Johnson in the top 20 of OPS (though he was still 26th!)
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
