It's really, really hard to be "not that productive otherwise" when Joe Mauer is the best player in baseball at avoiding getting out (highest OBP).
Remember, kids... The most important thing in baseball is not getting out. Everything else is secondary.
And for the love of God, never quote RBI as an indication of performance. It's worse than useless.
Well, if not getting out (OBP) is the best measure of offensive performance, then Joe Mauer must be the best offensive player in the league.
No, because there are other players that make outs at nearly the same percentage while also slugging at a much higher rate.
The poster I replied to used RBI and compared Joe Mauer to Austin Jackson. Anything more than a cursory glance at each player shows just how ridiculous that comparison is and that Mauer is obviously the superior player.
