Roberts with 1.124 just ahead of Derrek Lee, Chipper Jones and Adam Dunn. Delluci was a good guess, 2nd in the AL behind BR.

Roberts had an OPS the previous four years of less than .700.

Maybe the roids do more damage than good for some players ;-7

Now realistically there is no way he can keep this up but he could easily put up these final numbers even with the expected regression.

120 Runs 90 RBI's 25 HR's and 50 steals with a .330 Avg. As a second baseman that is No. 1 material in 2006.

What a steal he was this year.

Not sure about overall, probably someone like Adam Dunn but I know it's Konerko in the AL.

I looked it up yesterday, from memory I think he has more walks than hits 8-o

How about Giambi? I know his walk rate is pretty good so far this year?

Now, off to find the answer...

Well, I was off by a mile on Giambi. Dunn is a good guess but he comes in at #3. Kinda surprised by the answer as well.

Yeah, Giambi doesnt walk, he just gets hit by a lot of pitches.
As for the answer, I dont think I need to look, because for anyone know had this guy during his prolonged slump, the extremely high walk rate was the only thing analysts could talk about that pointed to him breaking out.

Speaking of Delluci, I have him on a few teams this year but haven't had the chance to watch him play.

Anyone that's actually watched the games have any idea WHY he walks so much? I mean, does he battle at the plate fouling off pitch after pitch until he draws the walk? Does he just have an excellent eye and not swing at anything off the plate? Are pitchers pitching around him for some unfathomable reason? I mean, this is getting ridiculous...a .200 point spread between the ave and the obp. I actually dropped him to pick up a SS to fill in for Figgins in one of my leagues because while he's getting on base a TON he's not scoring a ridiculous number of runs and his ave, rbi's and hr's aren't anything to write home about.
