Oh, conveniently cutting it off to exclude Zambrano? NOT COOL.
Na. Very cool. I feel like this acknowledges how much better Z was than anyone ever. He's the moment in history from which you measure time.
I got bored, so here's some numbers for some top "mashers" on the mound from the last few decades.
Mike Hampton - .246/.294/.356 ,16 HR, 67 wRC+
Carlos Zambrano - .238/.248/.388, 24 HR, 57 wRC+
Livan Hernandez - .221/.231/.295, 10 HR, 32 wRC+
Zack Greinke - .225/.263/.337, 9 HR, 60 wRC+
Madison Bumgarner - .177/.228/.303, 19 HR, 45 wRC+
Dontrelle Willis - .244/.287/.378, 9 HR, 75 wRC+
and the undisputed champ:
Micah Owings - .283/.310/.502, 9 HR, 104 wRC+
Surprisingly low on the list was Kerry Wood, with a .171/.196/.249, 7 HR, 9 wRC+ line. He would occasionally get a hold of one, but didn't do much else. I always thought he was better than that when I was younger. Oh well.
