Stat of the day: Batting average against leaders

Jul 26, 2009, 11:51 AM EDT

Taken from FanGraphs:

Clayton Kershaw – .199
Dan Haren – .200
Yovani Gallardo – .212
Edwin Jackson – .219
Tim Lincecum – .221
Matt Cain – .225
Matt Garza – .225
Jarrod Washburn – .226
Jair Jurrjens – .227
Scott Feldman – .228

Imagine if Kershaw didn’t average over five walks per nine innings?
Wow. Of course, the biggest surprise on this list is Rangers pitcher
Scott Feldman, but realize that he has gotten extremely lucky with a
.237 BABIP while the league average is somewhere around .300.
