Comments on: Leading both leagues in RBI and R (or “Why Curtis Granderson is the AL MVP”) http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/14524 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: Jbird http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/14524/comment-page-1#comment-144728 Fri, 02 Sep 2011 07:36:29 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=14524#comment-144728 As of this moment, Granderson has the fourth best ever runs scored/times on base ratio for all seasons (1901-) where a player scored at least as many runs as he has to date (123) with only Tommy Leach in nineteen-nine, Bucketfoot Szymanski in '30, and Joe D in '36 turning in better figures. If (when) Granderson scores 10 more runs, only Simmons will have him beat, and rightfully so as he is the only one higher than 60%. Ah yes, but this is only if Curtis can maintain his current 55.9% pace.

Get another one from your library or a buy a used one online, get your BAC to a suitable level, and laugh your ass off!

Sorry for assuming you meant more about him than merely that he's unique.

And! I didn't say anything about Mike Young winning the MVP because he is in the top 10 in singles, doubles, and triples. I mearly mentioned he is a unique player, as is the Gradyman. I love the Grandyman!
