    Are you a stat guy then? BECAUSE YOU'RE UNDERVALUING HOLT AND YOU'LL NEVER GE IT.

    I have nothing against "stats." They don't tell the whole story, though, especially in Holt's case. Someone stated their "opinion" that Holt was overrated by fans as if it was fact.

    As someone else mentioned, Holt's probably a replacement level player at best if he played every day. Those guys are a dime a dozen, but a guy who shows up at the park every day, mentally and physically ready to play any one of 7 positions is extremely rare, and therein lies his value.
