Last "Full" season.

Well we're almost to the ASB, and the other night I put together a little something. It's a representation of the past "season" since the last ASB. There are some surprising numbers here.

Thomas 451 126 40 104 0.279 0.605 1.019
Ordonez 427 142 20 80 0.333 0.550 0.943
Konerko 436 117 28 84 0.268 0.505 0.860
Valentin 404 101 28 73 0.250 0.525 0.836
Crede 455 125 21 68 0.275 0.495 0.821
Rowand* 247 82 12 38 0.332 0.567 0.949
Lee 548 170 23 95 0.310 0.505 0.865
Olivo 256 68 7 36 0.266 0.430 0.746
Harris 229 64 0 15 0.279 0.332 0.695

Now let's see if this works. -- Well now that it's working. Let's analyze. These numbers are accurate through June 22nd.

Frank Thomas leads the team in OPS, the most telling offensive stat. Coming in a surprising second is Aaron Rowand, who lost his job to Carl Everett last season, and to light hitting Willie Harris earlier this season. Rowand plays a respectable centerfield, as evidenced by to run-saving plays in todays game. The "knock" on rowand has been his inablity to hit RHP. In reality he doesn't do a bad job against RHP. Take a look at his numbers since 2002.

2002 204 0.255 0.637
2003 92 0.25 0.746
2004 97 0.258 0.727

That's an aggregate of .254. That's servicable. Especially for a guy who give's you 1.211OPS vs. Lefties this season. That's second only to Vlad Guerroro for players with more than 50 AB's. Rowand's .258 vs. RHP still puts him ahead of other name players like, Andruw and Chipper Jones, Ryan Klesko, Raul Mondesi, Raul Ibanez, and Mike Cameron. With the White Sox looking for pitching help as the trade deadline approaches, many GMs are going to be uttering Aaron Rowand's name. He's primed for a breakout season if someone gives him a real chance.
