No you're right, strikeouts don't matter. When we have runners at second and third with one out I don't want to see guys shorten up their swing like Konkero does. I want them to hit an 800 foot home run. In fact, that's all I want to see from guys. Situation be damned! SWING HARD BABY! SWING HARD! **** your .180 batting average in high leverage situations or a .204 average with runners in scoring position, HOME RUNS! AMIRITE?!
