The Thursday Thinker: BABIP Booms and Busts

New, 14 comments

If you spend your time in the right places, you might have heard that the B-Ref Play Index now allows you to search for players by BABIP. That gave me an idea. An awful idea. A wonderful, awful idea.

In Brewer history, 51 pitchers have thrown at least 300 innings. Ten of them have posted BABIPs against of .300 or more, and ten more have posted BABIPs against of .274 or less. How many of them can you name in ten minutes? 

The rules remain the same: Post your score in the comments but do not comment on any specific answer until after 6 pm Central time, so everyone gets a chance to try it out without having it spoiled for them. And, of course, there's no reason to cheat here, because there aren't any prizes.

In the highly unlikely event that you get them all, post your time along with your score.

Have fun, and don't forget to post your score in the comments!
