True .300 Hitters

How about we bust out some True .300 Hitters?  For this exercise, we'll identify who has a contact rate ((AB-K)/AB) of 85% or better and a walk rate (BB/PA) of 10% or better.  The true criteria, devised by Ron Shandler and Co., are a bit tighter (86%/11%).

Anyway, this should help us identify some early AVG under/overperformers.

The first list is those who meet the true .300 hitter criteria and have at least 30 PAs.  It's nice to see Luke Scott in this list.  These guys are fairly legit. (Props to Mike Sweeney - zero whiffs so far!)
