Yeah, I know "they" always say that a guy can't be credited, per se, with getting on base due to an error, because if the fielder hadn't committed an error, the batter wouldn't have gotten on base in the first place. But I wonder how many of those errors are forced because of the skill with which a batter hits the ball or their speed in getting to first? It's not all caused by just sheer defensive ineptitude, by guys like Huff and Hafner, et al. It seems like there should be a way of crediting these guys with getting on base "by any means possible"......Just a thought.
