In a single game scenario?

In a game with 6 at bats going 4-6 with four singles is superior to going 2-6 with two homeruns.

Obviously the value in any particular game will very.  Two HR with folks are base would certainly be more advantageous than four singles with two outs and the bases empty.

The point was to illustrate that Earl was right about how important it is to avoid outs.

Follow up post on the math.  Outs are bad M'kay?  Also 4 singles are better than 2 home runs.

What if each single was followed by an out as they tried to stretch it into a double?  'Splain that.
