Comments on: 300+ Career Games Since 1919 With AB>=4 And H+BB=0 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/12663 This and that about baseball stats.

Of the 479 games in which Ryan had three or more at-bats, he failed to get a hit in 233 of them (48.6%).

There's a lot of statistically wonky stuff going on here.

And @ 6, the old canard about the best players making out 70% of the time is wrong - why do people who say that simply ignore walks? It should be around 60%, which is a huge difference.

I know there are a few 300 guys there, but for the most part there are power bats and light hitting guys who didn't walk much.

Is it a good thing that Jeter isn't on it? It still doesn't make him a good leadoff hitter for the Yankees at this point in his career.

Not a surprise to see Craig Biggio leads the list in HBP's.
Also, check out Sammy Sosa's strikeout numbers.
