This is what I'm hoping for. Naturally I'm rooting for the pro baseball SB record, but I wonder how unique it would be for a player to lead two different minor leagues in an offensive category in the same year.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
