  1. So i see this was posted in 2011 but I’ve been actually searching for this statistic for a while now. Can’t really seem to find it. It would be useful in weeding out those players inconsistent players, but I can’t find a website anywhere that offers it. Any info would be appreciated

  2. In July 08, 2008 I came up with this:

    I’m changing my strategy around a bit. Wouldn’t it be nice to know which players tend to be the best at getting at least one hit per game? I’ve compiled a list of all the players in baseball and their percentage of not geting a hit in a game.Ian Kinsler is the best with not getting a hit in 14% of his games. One of the worst is Corey Patterson not getting a hit in 57% of his games this year.

    16 days later I wrote:

    i think my streak sucked, cuz i stopped my pirates strategy.i started to go with who has the best percentage of getting a hit in a game. 10 or so days ago, the top two players were Ian Kinsler who got at least one hit in a game 86% of the time. And Matt Holliday was 82%. So I went heavily on Kinsler and Holliday and never checked my streak.

  4. ESPN/GO….has the stats on longest streaks (I.E. Games with at least 1 hit) Hanley Ramirez is leading all other MLB players with 18 games with a hit; so I played him tonight.
