Let This Be an End to It

For all those who believe that power hitters need “protection” to be productive, I offer the following stat line:

.339 BA, .568 SLG, .430 OBP, 78 extra base hits, 26 HR, 114 RBI, 112 runs scored

The slugger in question? Miguel Cabrera.

Let this be an end to the myth of “protection” in the lineup. Unless you really think that Josh Willingham and Dan Uggla provided a heapin’ helpin’ of “protection.”
