You're forgetting the impact season by our leadoff man in 2005, setting the table, unhinging pitchers and scoring runs in bunches.
If anything, '04, '06 and '08 proved it: you can't get to the promised land by hitting a **** load of home runs alone, which is especially true in the current era where hitting numbers league-wide are low and pitching seems to have the upper hand.
We're in no hurry to add Viciedo to sit on the bench. Have Lillibridge press Pierre for playing time to get him back on track, and all is solved.
