I don't think of stats as rewards. I think it should reflect reality, not what we determine is good play. If there is evidence that some players get on base more than others because of errors that is valuable information and should be included in the stat.

A perfect game/no hitter can be seen as a stat and yet some people want batters to not attempt to get on base late in one of these games by bunting even when the player at the plate may have a, you know, knack for reaching base by bunting and there is evidence to prove that he can do that more than others. Talk about determining what is good play.
