A's in the Leaderboards

By Jason Wojciechowski on April 17, 2005 at 5:44 PM

I want to kick off a new weekly feature here at Beaneball, one that I used to do back in the days of posting on what's since become scout.com: A's in the league leaders. It's nothing special, but it's fun, and it condenses something I think a lot of people do (trolling leaderboards for their favorite players) into one page. I like to do silly categories (batting average, at bats, runs) as well as serious ones (EqA, RC/27, OPS) because remember, this isn't supposed to actually mean anything.

I'll post it weekly here in the blog section, but I'll also update a separate page for the stats section so you can always find it in one place. Let's kick it off.
