Pat Gillick on the ONLY stat that truly matter in the world of professional sports
Baseball’s Hall-Of-Fame induction ceremony took place yesterday and, once again, former Blue Jays’ titan, Pat Gillick/GM, was a virtuoso performer.
On the press-conference stage, Pat Gillick leapt to Blyleven’s defence, but did so clumsily. His fellow Hall of Fame inductee talked about the stats that he thought were important in baseball.
“There’s only one statistic that matters and that’s wins,” Gillick said, misunderstanding the issue. “He’s got 287 of them and at the end of the season you can throw all this other statistics out. It’s whoever wins 90 or 100 games, that’s what matters. Forget about the quality starts, forget about all the other stuff. It’s who wins the game.”
Congratulations Lawrence Patrick David [Pat] Gillick! You have always been a straight-arrow shooter.
