The phrase, though, is "a walk is as good as a hit", though they *mean* a walk is as good a single. But the phrase is "a walk is as good as a hit".They say a walk is as good as a single, in this case we are actually talking about hits.
A walk isn't as good as a single, it's definitely not as good as a hit.
Agreed 100%. I'd rather have my pitchers give up a lot of walks and few hits than the other way around, for obvious reasons. Though walks sure slow the game down and can be torture to watch.You can walk 3 guys before a run scores. Chances of giving up 3 hits without a run coming across are slim to none.
