Who Said It?

UPDATE: Kudos to the 18% of you who knew this quote came from former Mets GM Steve Phillips. It might make you feel a little better to know the context of the quote: he said it in defense of Jeromy Burnitz, whom he was about to acquire from the Brewers.

I'm closing the comments on this one because I don't want to queer the results. Will reopen later.

"It's not just about strikeouts in a vacuum. If a player strikes out but he also walks, he's a functional hitter. I tend to look more at on-base percentage and slugging percentage than I do just flat strikeouts."
