ADP and Batting Average Leaders

While looking at last years BA leaders I decided to make the cut for our observation at .280 (surprisingly no one hit at .280). I felt .280 was a good benchmark because most standard 5x5 leagues have a team win the BA stat category with an average at or very near the.280 mark. If you did not realize this figure, that is what you should be shooting for to win your BA category. Yes, some may be higher but you will not be hurt if you can consistently approach that level. 54 players hit above .280 last year. That is less than 2 per each MLB team, it really was the year of the pitcher. BA is not a category I target early in drafts but am aware of if I am on the fence between a couple of players in the mid to late rounds. One good stat beyond the BA is the BABIP (Batting average for balls in play). If you are not familiar with it its time to learn...everyone else in your league will be. This stat shows just how lucky a player was for any given year for balls hit into play, this excludes Ks. Anyhooo here are the players that hit +.280 last year and their ADP. Tomorrow we will look at all the players that have made our list for 100+RBI, 20+HR, +.280BA I think we smell some value.
