Leading the League

Sure, it's "convenient" that I picked today to point this out.  Fortunately, that doesn't make what you're about to see any less real.

American Leauge Leaders, Batting Average

Name Avg Obp Slg
Joe Mauer .331 .404 .414
Kevin Youkilis .328 .394 .598
Josh Hamilton .321 .370 .599
Milton Bradley .319 .428 .569
Mark Grudzielanek .316 .376 .390
Casey Kotchman .316 .368 .494

Sure, I'm making myself "one of those guys" by celebrating batting average a little bit here.  Today:  don't care.  Joe Mauer is leading the American League.

I love saying that.
