Hitting upward of .320 despite K'ing more than once every three at bats and his on base percentage is still creeping in on .400. He's actually the league leader in strike outs now that I checked. That's the only thing about him that isn't win.
Can someone explain BABIP to me and how that spells problems for Jackson?
Batting Average on Ball In Play. It means all the balls he puts into play are finding holes. The number he is putting up now is not really sustainable over the length of a season. Eventually those balls are going to be hit at defenders.
