Forgot about Livan, he's good also.

I'd say the Cubs 1-2-3 pitchers are all pretty good hitters. Can't really think of any that aren't already listed, but I'll go have a look...

OK the best BA's for pitchers (not including 2005 #'s):

Jason Jennings: .257 (Plays in Coors field though)
Mike Hampton: .256 (Played in Coors as well)
Livan Hernandez: .242
Dontrelle Willis: .220

Zam is actually not that high on the list, but it's his 1/30 rookie season that drags him down.

Also, MS Access was acting kinda screwy so it might not be 100% accurate.

With how bad the Braves are swinging their toothpicks lately, don't be surprised to see Hampton out in left for tomorrow's game. :-o

Oh yeah and somebody that hasn't been mentioned that might be the best of them all: Brooks Kieschnick. He's sort of a combo RP/PH that used to be a hitting prospect but switched to being a pitcher a couple years ago. Had a .760 career OPS and spent the last 2 seasons as a relief pitcher for the Brewers. Jennings and Hampton's OPS are only about .650 and they played in Coors Field. Might not seem all that significant for Hampton since he only played 2 years in Colorado, but 10 of his 14 career HR's were hit palying for the Rockies.

I second the Hudson thing, I have heard he is supposed to be good.

Brandon Backe is a really good hitter.

He's 8 for 21 in his young career with a homer. He has a 1.077 OPS.

Brandon Backe should also be included in this group I think. Although he hasn't been around very long.
