Yes I'm glad his walk rate is going up and getting on base more, that was something he needed to work on despite always being a 300 hitter..

Somewhat useless.

In 2011 Jose Bautista was arguably top hitter in baseball. Granderson and Konerko had more RBIs than Bautista because rest of the Jays lineup was mediocre. It's a team based stat. You cant rack up RBIs if those in front of you don't get on base.
