Seriously, the funniest part is you don't realize how big of a ***** you come off as.   

How about you define what every word that quanties non-specifically means?  Here's a few;

Several
Many
A lot
Bunch
 

Do any of those mean "an average amount?"

I think we can agree that a lot is an amount somewhere above average.

Yes or no?

EDIT: specifically "a lot." Don't care what several means.

OK.  How many walks did the "average" big league player draw?

1000 or more?
999 or less?

The average big leaguer walks about 8.5% of the time.

Would you say that BJ Surhoff hit a lot of home runs in his career?

Does that equate to more or less than 1000 per career?

I will answer that question after you answer this:

Would you say that BJ Surhoff hit a lot of home runs in his career?

How big is the career, there, John Trollvolta?
2/13/2014 5:47 PM
Ah, hell, let's just cut to the chase.

116 players, in big league history, drew 1000 walks.

Do you not think 1000 walks is a lot when compared to the AVERAGE big league players' career totals?

A career lasts from their first BL appearance til their last BL appearance, Mr. Einstein.

How often were you dropped on your head as a child?  And as an adult?

Compared to the AVERAGE big league career totals, 1000 are a lot of walks. So are 999.   Legit questions....how many guys have played MLB?

So you argue relativity when talking about bum on the street/Warren Buffet...but you fail to grasp relativity now?    Shocked I am, shocked.
