Yeah, Peralta feels like cheating since he's so close, but he's added 45 points to his average in the last 6 games.

David Freese is also close, at .193 and he has one of the highest career average of the group at .281

Has anyone's career path taken a stranger path than Carl Crawford? He goes from Kenny Lofton in his prime to like 38 year old Mo Vaughn in the span of 3 years

not many of those names look encouraging to me to make it past .200.

Sandoval looks like the most likely to me. I thought coming into the season that he would be closer to .300, so it's surprising to see him so low. .208 BABIP with 20.3 LD%.

He really did fall off the face of the Earth.
That's why I think it's funny when people talk about L.A's 4 OF problem.

The problem is, you have to live with a bench player making $20M. He's a 4th OF at this point, only the contract keeps him in the starting lineup.
