Of course he can be caught. Someone pointed that out before. But that wasn't what I was asking. To clarify, I was wondering, IF Hamilton isn't caught, would that be the first time someone led two minor leagues in a counting stat in the same season?
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.
