2009 Top Ten Overall Hitters

An article by posted on March 6, 2009

The 2009 Bill James Handbook projects the following hitters to be in the top ten in Runs Created this season.

Hitter Age 2009 Team Runs Created
Albert Pujols 29 Cardinals 159
Miguel Cabrera 26 Tigers 135
Ryan Braun 25 Brewers 134
David Wright 26 Mets 134
Josh Hamilton 28 Rangers 131
Hanley Ramirez 25 Marlins 131
Ryan Howard 29 Phillies 130
Mark Teixeira 29 Yankees 130
Alex Rodriguez 33 Yankees 128
Lance Berkman 33 Astros 127

Note: Age is seasonal as of June 30, 2009.

I didn’t expect to see Miguel Cabrera ranked so high or Alex Rodriguez so low. It’s nice to know that the highly regarded Bill James expects a huge season from David Wright.

On another note, I think Mets.com is having some issues…
