Today's question is:

 

Which of the Cubs regular starters hit .342 in 1971, leading the team?

 

 

However, I am boycotting batting average so the new question is:

 

Which of the Cubs regular starters led the team with a 12.3% BB rate?

 

and

 

Which of the Cubs regular starters led the team with a 4.2% K rate? (INSANE) (hint: he had the same number of walks as strikeouts)

I believe that was Glenn Beckert.  Thanks Strat - o - Matic 3 minute game app.

 

I will guess wildly that Billy Williams had the high walk rate and Don Kessinger had the low k rate.

Right on Beckert having the highest BA.

 

Wrong on the other two.

On the walk rate I'm guessing Dave Kingman and the strike out rate I guess Tony Gwynn

On the walk rate I'm guess in Ron Santo and on the strike out rate i'm guessing Fishin Phil

The walk rate was Santo.  K rate, close but he had that one-checked swing K call that screwed him out of the title.

I remember Beckert hardly ever struck out.  His year ended prematurely that year -- along with his career really -- when Mike Shannon took him out on dirty play/slide into second base.

Close

Joe Hansman-Epstein (damnit, I'm not giving up my last name, no matter how dreamy you are)

Beckert is correct.
