hehe! fun rule. if you extended that to any
number of ABs, and we assume michael young remains in the league lead and is hitting .330 when the year ends, then polanco would need to hit about .474 in his ~350 ABs in order to win the title.
sadly, that's a bit better than he's doing.
still, great pickup for those who went out and got him! (as well as those of us who drafted him and stuck with his sorry ass the whole time....)
