"I had my best two seasons the last two years. They talk about I'm not on base enough. Well, I'm still in the top three in runs scored, you know what I mean?
"Looking at the important categories, looking at the numbers that really count, I'm doing my job as a leadoff hitter. You can get on base, but does it help your team win? But if you don't score runs, if your score doesn't move, your record probably doesn't get better."
Hmm. Jimmy, maybe you were in the top three because you were hitting in front of very good to great hitters like Lofton/Michaels, Abreu, Utley, Burrell and Howard -- guys who don't waste outs. Maybe you would have been #1 in runs scored if you'd gotten on base more.
