Michael Bourn Is Fast At Many Things

Not only is Atlanta Braves leadoff man Michael Bourn fast on the basepaths, but he is also fast in the batters box. Jeff Sullivan at Baseball Nation looks at the slowest and fastest average at-bat times over the past four years, and Bourn comes away a half second faster between pitches than any other player in baseball. I'm not sure this is good one way or another, but it seems to be a trend that more leadoff-type players have faster times between pitches than sluggers. It's an interesting read, even if we don't know how to use that information just yet.
