Florimonzie's triple slash now stands at:

[TABLE="class: rgMasterTable"]
[TR="class: rgRow grid_total"]
[TD="class: grid_line_break, align: right"].109[/TD]
[TD="class: grid_line_regular, align: right"].186[/TD]
[TD="class: grid_line_regular, align: right"].156[/TD]
[/TR]
[/TABLE]

wRC+ of negative 5.

84 of the 187 batters on Fangraphs qualified leaderboard have a higher OBP than Florie's .342 OPS.

I'm having a tough time seeing the 'fun' parts in here. Maybe a new title is in order.

But that's not a fair comparison because one of those numbers is a composite of... oh wait.

The Twins have 4 guys (all qualified) in the top 30 OPS in MLB.

Pinto - 16
Colabello - 20
Plouffe - 21
Kubel - 27


It's a good thing our pitching has picked up recently because we no longer have anyone in the top 50

Well, the Twins have been .500 nine different times this season, and they usually field nine baseball players in each game, and 9x9=81wins.

Of the nine Twins hitters with the most PAs this season, seven have an OPS+ over 100.

Gibson has an ERA of 3.50, and is in the top 20 in AL in ERA! When is the last time the Twins had a starter towards the top of the league in ERA?

Also, Hughes is in top 40 in AL in ERA, so 2 starters in Top 40 in AL in ERA!

I believe it is 51. Number 50 is Nolasco and #51 is Correia.

Suzuki has an even more favorable ratio of 11/7.

Dozier's .814 OPS leads all MLB hitters batting .250 or less. No one else is over .800.

He's already a valuable offensive player, but once that .250 BAPIP moves up a bit he could be really special.

Two players have a higher ISO (isolated power) than that:
Troy Tulowitzki - 0.379
Jose Abreu - 0.354

As of today:

Santana no longer an MLB SS virgin.

Note that this is more a case of topology than statistics.
