Here is where the stat guys fail. They can take one season in Giambi's prime and qualify that he was walked x amount of times and that resulted in y amount of runs scored. That would put an end to the clog the bases nonsense. But they (stat guys) seem to act as if this criticism isn't prevalent in some sectors of the baseball world. Debunk the myth, don't simply poo-poo it. The ancient Greeks proved the earth was round, yet it wasn't accepted by the main stream until after Magellan's voyage.

Some things are so inherently dumb that all you can do is laugh at them.

Besides, the "clog the basepaths" crap has been debunked already.
