Wow, thanks for bringing this up. I never, ever said that pulling the ball was the only factor in hitting. Brian Roberts has a pretty nice swing, regardless of whether or not he pulled every pitch. I'm just saying that it helps, and judging from those lists of hitters you put up, it is clearly evident. Those are some great hitters. 3 potential Hall of Famers on a list of 11 players?

I'll take it.
