Is Delmon Young the Third-Most Patient Hitter On the Team?

Color me surprised...

Name P/PA
Brendan Harris 4.1
Joe Mauer 4.0
Delmon Young 3.8

Those are your team leaders in pitches per plate appearance.  Seriously.  This doesn't mean he doesn't have poor strike zone judgement, but it goes against the idea that he's been horrifically aggressive in pitch selection.  Just goes to show that you can't always trust what your eyes tell you.  Sorry about that one Delmon--my bad.
