That's funny. How often do stats line up that closely?

That's funny. They do line up nicely, except that Parmelee sort of knows how to take a walk, at least compared to Valencia.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Wow, pretty telling numbers! Of course Valencia's were accumulated with regular playing time, and Parmelee has had to piece that together 1 or 2 games per week. So Valencia's line looks much worse.

I ran across something similar recently. My example is a little different, but it's pretty shocking nonetheless. Take a look at Vinny Castilla's 1996 and 1997 seasons for the Rockies. Something like this has to be even rarer, given the significant number of at-bats each year.

1996 .304 - 40 - 113
1997 .304 - 40 - 113

I think those numbers are the opposite of telling. One set is from a 24 year old player facing major league pitching for the first time. The other is from a 28 year old player with over 1000 PAs.
