Even when a Met wins the team's first batting title in 50 years, there's some kind of controversy attached to it. Even as a Mets fan & a big Reyes supporter, can't defend what he did today.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 16:31 GMT
pedroia had 195 hits. other than that great quiz
Sep 29th, 2011 at 18:30 GMT
What a bad year for my Twins. Not one player on here, and I'm guessing none of our pitchers would be on a pitching version of this quiz either. A pitching version of this would be pretty cool though.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 18:35 GMT
Disagree with the Reyes comment, I see nothing wrong with what he did, be happy he got a title.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 19:12 GMT
I'm happy he got the batting title & I don't think winning it that way tarnishes anything (especially after Braun did nothing at night). Just have a problem with him being their best player & the team is still trying to win a game. And I'm sure the 20,000 fans there would rather see him play a full game. Either way, congrats & I hope he's back next year.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 20:02 GMT
Teddy Ballgame's rolling over in his grave right now after the Reyes decision.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 21:08 GMT
So the 'triples' list doesn't drag on, perhaps you could accept all players with eight triples and combine them into one, stating "7 tied" when we type a player in. Other than that good job.
Sep 29th, 2011 at 23:07 GMT
I was thinking that, but I thought it would be more challenging
Sep 29th, 2011 at 23:13 GMT
Seems unfair to include Ortiz with a .309 AVG but not Votto, whose was actually ~.0003 higher.
Sep 30th, 2011 at 00:25 GMT
@mraithel13: You mean the cryo-chamber?
Sep 30th, 2011 at 02:13 GMT
what happened with reyes? Did he bench himself to preserve his average?
Sep 30th, 2011 at 02:39 GMT
Yeah, Votto definitely needs to be included with the .309 average.
Sep 30th, 2011 at 06:57 GMT
Jose Reyes doesn't have the authority to bench himself. That decision ultimately belongs to Terry Collins. That said, the two of them no doubt were in cahoots. It would have been one thing if Reyes had gotten the day off completely. But to get a hit and then flee the lineup like he did is inexcusable.
Sep 30th, 2011 at 14:23 GMT
Eagerly awaiting the pitching version!
Sep 30th, 2011 at 20:36 GMT
not even typing in that schmucks name
Sep 30th, 2011 at 20:45 GMT
Navarro, yeah. He bunted for a hit in the first then benched himself to preserve the title.
Sep 30th, 2011 at 20:49 GMT
There must be some mistake. Albert Pujols and Ichiro aren't on the batting average list
Oct 1st, 2011 at 17:03 GMT
I myself was surprised to find out that drew stubbs had 205 strikeouts.
Oct 2nd, 2011 at 19:20 GMT
You need to add Joey Votto to the batting average list.

Did anyone actually guess Jemile Weeks? Or, did everyone (like me) put Weeks for his older brother Rickie?
Oct 6th, 2011 at 19:56 GMT
not suprised to see mark reynolds on this list for HRs and Ks, i actually invented a new stat for extremely inefficient players like him: strikeouts + errors divided by homeruns (k+e/hr)i think im going to call it the mark reynolds index.
Oct 6th, 2011 at 20:34 GMT
5 globes, and I haven't even started the quiz yet.
Oct 6th, 2011 at 20:38 GMT
@Beatlezfann: That's kinda like WAR...
Oct 6th, 2011 at 20:43 GMT
So strange to have a baseball leaders quiz where Ramirez and Rodriguez get you nothing.
Oct 6th, 2011 at 21:17 GMT
add joey votto to batting average
Oct 6th, 2011 at 21:34 GMT
Finally someone who strikes out more than Mark Reynolds.
Oct 6th, 2011 at 23:36 GMT
Votto beat out Ortiz .3088 to .3085 they both round to .309
Oct 10th, 2011 at 21:46 GMT
Proof the stars of my time are getting old: Ichiro isn't on the hits list.
Oct 15th, 2011 at 01:18 GMT
Ellsbury has 212 hits, not 213. source: http://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/AL/2011-batting-leaders.shtml
Oct 15th, 2011 at 14:18 GMT
Certainly did not expect Melky Cabrera to get 200 hits this year...
Oct 17th, 2011 at 03:50 GMT
I'm not sure why anyone would anyone would criticize Jose Reyes for doing something that's pretty common when you have the lead in a close batting race. Just ask Ty Cobb (1910), Wade Boggs (1986 and 1988), Bill Mueller (2003), Bernie Williams (1998), Terry Pendleton (1991), George Brett (1990), Carney Lansford (1981), Tim Raines (1986), Bill Madlock (1976 and 1983), or Tony Gwynn (1988 and 1997). (Or Ken Griffey Sr (1976), who it didn't work out for.) Some of those guys didn't just leave the last game early - they skipped the whole game, or even more than one. And that's not even mentioning all the players who stopped playing in order to make sure their average didn't fall below .300, like Derek Jeter in 2008 , whose average fell to .300 in the third inning of the third-to-last game when he came out of the game and didn't play any more that year.
I'm also not sure why someone trying to take the "easy way" to a batting title would choose to start in a meaningless game against Roy Halladay with only a few games left in the season like Reyes did. (This may be controversial, but I'm going to say it - I think Roy Halladay might just be a better pitcher than Edinson Volquez.)
Feb 5th, 2012 at 07:42 GMT
great game! you should add the team name next to the players though...
Mar 25th, 2012 at 16:11 GMT
Shocking that names like Mauer, Morneau, Rodriguez, Ramirez, etc. get you nothing
Apr 9th, 2012 at 23:15 GMT
Team names will be more helpful, but still great quiz.
May 14th, 2012 at 01:57 GMT
@mungar i did it 4 Rickie who would get Jemile i guess some die hard A's Fan
May 15th, 2012 at 17:49 GMT
Should be an * by Ryan Braun's name.
Nov 30th, 2012 at 22:07 GMT
Shouldn't Miguel Cabrera be #1 in Home Runs?
Dec 8th, 2012 at 15:21 GMT
Jesus, what happened? Ichiro not first in hits? Reynolds not first in strikeouts?
Jan 15th, 2013 at 02:09 GMT
110 out of 112! missed uggla and beltre. Great quiz
