2016-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Matt, who is the best hitter in the league and why is it Colin Walsh?
(travis from milwaukee)
This is a Good, Smart question. I would say Colin Walsh is the best hitter in baseball, because I really really like him. (Also, at last check, he had the biggest gap between career batting average and OBP. Ever!) (Matthew Trueblood)
