I think you still need to get some wins and I think you still need to drive in some runs. They are each an important statistic in a large group of statistics. You cannot just ignore them because some gearheads come up with abstract statistics.

Management must think something of them. Contracts routinely have bonuses for the traditional stats. Never heard of a guy getting a bonus for his XFIP ot his WAR.
