I love the “Last X Calendar Year(s)” option that David added to the leaderboards here, and so this morning, let’s take a stroll through the past 365 days and look at some performances that might surprise you.
The narrative of Hardy as an inconsistent youngster and Tejada as a slugging star can probably be put to rest.
I know Roberts is a good baserunner, but would you have guessed that he was fourth in baseball in stolen bases over the last year?
These guys are #1 and #2 in baseball in runs batted in over the last year. Just a reminder that no one’s catching Hack Wilson. Speaking of Howard, he’s also struck out 231 times in that time frame. Yeesh.
Yuni has drawn half as many walks as the guy with the second fewest over the same time frame. Stop swinging you hack.
That just made me laugh.
