no, you need more offense, and now the new wave saber guys are saiyng nope, the earlier conventional wisdom was right, fielding metrics now show how valuable a good ss is. Thats like the Woody Allen movie Sleeper when he runs a health food store, dies, and is revived years in the future, and the scientist reviving him tells him Of course we now know that steak and banana splits are the healthiest foods. Kinda like the Atkins Diet. ReplyB says:November 18, 2009 at 12:49 pmTeams get 2 point conversions ~50% of the time.

Still, if you look at the leaderboards provided by this fine site, the best fielders are worth >15 runs. The best hitters are worth >40 runs, so I think that tells you something about the relative value of defense.
