  • Although, if you're only going to be good at one thing, hitting home runs is a pretty good thing to only be good at.

      You are probably right, I guess. However, I grew up with fast running/great defense teams that didn't rely on home runs to score (other than a George Hendrick or a Jack Clark in the order)! As a kid, I always preferred the stolen base guys to the home run hitters. Ironically, though, at the same time I really liked Kingman, Gorman Thomas, Tony Armas, Steve Balboni and Ron Kittle! They couldn't steal a base if the catcher left the field for a pitch or two, and didn't contribute much more offensively than the home run. Thomas was a pretty fast runner when he was young, though.
