Hmmm...for some reason I can't sort the stats on ESPN right now. But as I said, his COUNTING stats...not the slash lines.
Zack had more runs scored than Frazier (72 to 55) Harper had 98
Zack had more hits than Frazier (138 to 115) Harper had 144
Zack had more doubles than both (33 to 26 for both Frazier & Harper)
Zack's HR totals weren't far off them either (15 for Zack, 19 for Frazier, 22 for Harper)
Those were just a few I looked at. Sure, he had more playing time than either of them, but he had a pretty solid rookie campaign in many ways. Toss his defense in there and like I said, I'm a bit surprised he's not in the top 8 or so.
