His extrapolations are based on strikeouts/game. The at bat total may well be wrong.

It'll be interesting to see what happens when they get back far enough to encounter this issue. I guess the more eyes looking at things the better.

The numbers are being estimated based on incomplete data and it can end up in screwy results like that.

I really think this *has* to be clearly noted on the site. Otherwise you are presenting estimated stats as if they were actual. It's similar to the old catcher stats which have SB/CS based on prorated team totals, not actual player totals. It is very misleading.
