since being moved down to 2 hole he's been en fuego.   Inciarte, Albies and Freeman should have always been 1-3.  The 2 hole places slightly less pressure on Albies to get on base and being in front of Freeman he's now getting pitches he can do something with.

 

Playing against the O's doesn't hurt either

Through 77 games Ozzie has 335 at-bats.

 

Jimmy Rollins has the record for at-bats in a season with 716. 

 

Other than being a durable player who doesn't take enough walks, what does this tell?

That he wikl reliably be in your fantasy lineup daily.

 

No sweating whether the manager might give him a breather or sit him against a certain left or right handed pitcher.

Who cares? I just think it would be cool for (basically) a rookie to break an MLB record.

+1 here.  Why do people have to be so cynical?  Or why does everything have to be a means to an end.  It is always fun to watch records get broken.

You guys are so defensive. How is it cynical when we’re in a fantasy baseball forum and I asked what the benefit of the record is to fbb? I’d be happier to see him increase  his walk rate than to be a league leader in AB each season. That’s one thing keeping him from the upper echelon of rankings.

He's a kid. Good chance he cuts his K rate over the next few seasons

Chill out, bro. He most likely won't break the record anyway, just thought it was cool that he's kind of on pace to. I'm sure he will improve his OBP in years to come solely to please your fantasy needs.

I will never understand why managers would bench a player who is as hot as Albies is right now.

Go out on a high note.

Any idea what's happened with Ozzie's game the past couple weeks to lead to so much quality contact?  Still a bit nervous due to the lack of walks.  I just have a tough time getting fully invested in a young hitter when he's not taking Walks.
