Halfway Leader board Shenanigans


Since we've pretty much hit the halfway point of the 2013 season, I'd say its time for a little leader board fun. Of course, the highest ranked Braves will be mentioned in bold. All rankings are MLB ranks, and all stats do not include tonight's (6/30) games.

Batting Average -

I know Miguel Cabrera is a beast and everything, but the guy is hitting .375 this year! Others that are having year's that make you look twice:
3. Troy Tulowitzki - .347
4. Michael Cuddyer - .346
7. Adam Lind - .325
11. Chris Johnson - .322
21. James Loney - .314

Home Runs -

Chris Davis leads the world with 30 so far. He's 2 away from his career high which he set last year.
T7. Nelson Cruz - 20
T7. Pedro Alvarez - 20
T10. Raul Ibanez - 18
T19. Justin Upton - 15
T19. Chris Carter - 15
T19. JP Arencibia - 15

RBI -

Miguel Cabrera and Chris Davis are going to duel it out all year for this crown. Cabrera is ahead with a slim 2 RBI lead with 81.
7. Brandon Phillips - 61
14. Mike Napoli - 54
T16. Josh Donaldson - 52
T21. Freddie Freeman - 50
T23. Daniel Nava - 49

Runs Scored -

Once again Miguel Cabrera leads all of baseball in an offensive category. Shocker, I know. He's tops with 63 runs this year.
5. Matt Carpenter - 58
9. Shin-Soo Choo - 54
16. Starling Marte - 51
T19. Dexter Fowler - 49
T19. Justin Upton - 49

Doubles -

I have no problem predicting Manny Machado is going to break the record for most doubles in a season set by Earl Webb in 1931 with 67. Machado is already at 37.
2. Yadier Molina - 26
T5. Gerardo Parra - 24
T9. Anthony Rizzo - 23
T11. Jason Castro - 22
T11. Kyle Seager - 22
T66. Chris Johnson - 16

Hits -

Miguel Cabrera leads again with 117. No surprise there. #2 might sneak up on you though.
2. Manny Machado - 112
3. Jean Segura - 105
T12 - Howie Kendrick - 96
17 - Nick Markakis - 94
21. Jose Altuve - 91
T60 - Freddie Freeman - 79

OPS -

The race is closer than you would think but again, Miguel Cabrera leads it with a 1.139 OPS.
2. Chris Davis - 1.133
3. Troy Tulowitzki - 1.048
10. Adam Lind - .938
17. Yadier Molina - .895
24. Nate Schierholtz - .876
35. Freddie Freeman - .839

wRC+ -

If you're not familiar with wRC+, its a catchall statistic for runs created which is weighted, is adjusted for park and league, and is compared to league average which is 100. Again, Miggy with the lead at 207. This would mean Cabrera is batting 107% better than league average.
2. Chris Davis - 198
T7 - Michael Cuddyer - 159
T12 - Jason Kipnis - 153
19. Josh Donaldson - 146
T27. Freddie Freeman - 134

WAR (FanGraphs) -

Because there are 2 WAR's out there, this is going by FanGraphs' evaluation. Remember WAR incorporates baserunning and defense. Miguel Cabrera has a solid 0.9 lead over everyone with 5.5 so far.
4. Carlos Gomez - 4.4
T8. Manny Machado - 3.8
T11. Everth Cabrera - 3.5
22. Starling Marte - 3.0
29. Jhonny Peralta - 2.6
T69. Justin Upton - 1.6
