I've never been a fan of the all or nothing type of hitters. They seem to hit a lot of HRs on "so what situations"…tape measure shots in a 12-2 loss. In a tight game against a good pitcher bearing down, they usually fail.
Key stat for me is always how many doubles does a guy hit. He doesn't get all that many, strikes out a ton and hits for a low average. What, exactly, does anyone see in this guy????
