MLB’s Week 10 Hottest Hitters
- Updated: June 9, 2008
#1 this week is brought to you by Milton Bradley. Not the board game company, but the Texas Ranger’s DH who hit 6 HRs this week with 14 runs scored while knocking in 12 RBIs, swiping 4 bases and hitting .464 with an OBP of .615
That was more than 10 points better than the next big hitter from last week, Joe Crede from the White Sox whom they tried to trade in the off season. He also had 12 RBIs while hitting 5 HRs and batting .478, but I don’t expect Crede to hit even half of this on a regular basis or even again for that matter.
The next two spots on this list come from Boston. Ever since last October, that J.D. Drew signing has started to look better and better as opposed to the bust most people thought it was as recently as last August. He’s the only other player on this list with double digit Runs and RBIs while smacking 4 HRs, swiping a bag and hitting over .500 with an OBP of .600
The other is no surprise as it’s the recent hitter of his 500th HR, Manny Ramirez and if he can stop hitting his teammates in the dugout, we would be even more happy with this past week’s performance at the plate.
Another Ramirez, Hanley of the Marlins, sits next on our list this week. He also hit 5 HRs with 2 stolen bases, but unlike Crede, we have become accustomed to him having weeks like this and would NOT be surprised if he has another one (or more) like it again this year.
Rounding off the back 5 of this list are Jose Guillen of KC, Ryan Garko of the Indians, the White Sox Nick Swisher, Jose Reyes of the Mets and as a bookend to Milton Bradley’s performance, Michael Young also of the Rangers. You can see their stats from this past week below.
