2008 NL League Leader wrap-up


David Baez
(Burlington) 60 - The highest total in either league, Baez made a lot of happy hippies in Burlington this season. Let's hope he wants to be paid in granola bars.

Larry Butler
(Ottawa) 159 - Butler has had (another) monster season, and has established himself as perhaps the best young hitter in the game.

Alex Pujols
(Charleston) 145 - Caught just 9 times - he must make Vince Coleman look like Harmon Killebrew.

Batting Average:
Sherm Bradshaw
(Santa Fe) .345 - Bradshaw bested teammate Kirk Winston by just 2 points. Any other ballpark - they hit around .280 (just kidding KP! I'll be expecting the trade offer shortly).

Larry Butler (Ottawa) 1.056 - See his previous entry.

Bob Stargell
(Monterrey) 17 - A very good year from a very good young lefty. A Pepperjacks mainstay for a while, I'd wager.

Miguel Rodriguez
(Oklahoma City) 42 - Only blew 5 chances, and the Bombers (boo!) only won 68 games. I suspect a statue of him has been erected in OKC, albeit nowhere near the old Federal Building.

Felipe Feliz
(Santa Fe) 224 - The enigmatic and well-traveled Feliz finally finds his comfort zone in Santa Fe, of all places.

William Taft
(Philadelphia) 3.01 - *No*, no *that* William Taft, this one is a veteran pitcher having a career year, not a morbidly obese President who introduced the bathtub to the White House.
