Oh, I agree, hits stats are pretty silly. They only mean something interpreted correctly. But 6 hits in fortywhatever games is pretty clearcut. It's not like all the other guys on his team also had nearly 0 hits. I was only trying to use the stat to indicate that Legwand isn't a gritty player, which it turns out the original guy didn't really mean anyways.
