Has a teenager ever finished a season that high in history? Mel Ott, Tony Conigliaro and Jimmy Foxx were in the 130's. I can't think of anyone else to even check it against.
    Like woy said, Ott's the standard for teenagers. Foxx only had 147 plate appearances during his age 19 season so he didn't really have a large enough sample.

    Here's the list of teens with a RC/27 ratio higher than 100 (league average) with a minimum 300 plate appearances. The list is rather small and is littered with Hall of Famers (and a few guys like Magee and Sheckard who probably should be in the Hall).

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Another 3 for 4 with a walk tonight. Almost to .300 now with nearly 150 AB's under his belt.

    The only guy who got him out tonight was Coco Cordero... Also did anyone see that mammoth bomb in his first game at Fenway this past Friday? He was fun to watch on a Reds off-night.

    Re: Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Looking forward to seeing Harper in person. I'm going to the Nationals/Yankees game Saturday afternoon. Harper wasn't up with the Nats in April when I went to see them play the Reds. Nats also have Morse back. So their lineup has some more pop in it.

    Mike Trout had an equally nice game last night too, hit a HR, singled in the 9th and stole second, scored the winning run on a bloop single to LF

    This is funny, because I just retired an 18 year old wallet.

    Heck, I have shoes older than all of them, at least until the next Moyer comeback. Sure, the older than Darren Oliver ones are kind of tight, but they're still kicking around in the closet.

    Trout and Harper are the two best prospects I've seen in 20 years.

    If Trout had to face Brad Salmon, who would win?

    Carlos Fisher would have caught them both.

    Perhaps they would have landed near Kevin Bass or Mike Carp.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
