I normally do this at the beginning of November, but it slipped my mind this year. It's good to have something to read on Thanksgiving (not all of us are lucky enough to be with our families and need some form of distraction, whether at home or at work), and these aren't exactly leaderboards that people memorize either. Enjoy!

Just a few notes.

  • Jason Repko struck out more often than Thome, he just didn't have enough plate appearances to make the leaderboard.
  • On the same list, Brendan Harris struck out more often than Morneau.
  • Other than Kubel and Morneau, look at the difference between strikeout rates and swinging outside the strike zone. They're definitely not the same thing.
