What Baseball Players (Don't) Know About Baseball, Part II

SI Players Poll: "Which individual hitting statistic is the most meaningful?"

Runs Batted In: 41%
On-base percentage: 19%
Batting average: 13%
On-base plus slugging: 11%
Runs: 6%

So in a landslide, MLB players would rather have Julio Lugo (73 RBI) at the plate instead of Derek Jeter (71), Ichiro Suzuki (68), Barry Bonds (66), or Alfonso Soriano (65).

(These people voting are the guys who will be managing your favorite team in 20 years.)
