Bill Gilbert: Triple Milestones 2016

November 30, 2016
Analyst and Commentator on the Astros for The Pecan Park Eagle has some smiling hopeful things to say about the club's performance in August 2016.

Analyst and Commentator on the Astros for The Pecan Park Eagle presents his always eagerly awaited triple milestone analysis for the 2016 season.

Bill Gilbert’s annual analysis of the triple milestone hitters in baseball is another fascinating production in 2016. Focusing on MLB performances, Gilbert’s list includes all hitters with a minimal qualifying season batting average of .300 who also hit at least 30 home runs and recorded no less than 100 runs batted in over the course of the season.

Normally, we would include the entire column and all of its tabular data here on the front page of The Pecan Park Eagle, but the volume of stats included will not line up properly here without far more editorial time than we have time today to reconstruct in tables that work on this site.

Not wanting to deprive our readers of the joy that comes with looking over the several fine numerical presentations that always come with this sort of Gilbert data analysis, and that fun would be missing from the data if we copied it here in unedited form. As is, it scatters the data into chaos when we attempt to post the numerical parts without further extensive editorial reconstruction into the formats needed here on WordPress.

Never fear. Simply click the following link and read the full Bill Gilbert Article as it was sent to us by e-mail attachment and intended to be read. In this format, you will have the choice of opening the column for reading only, and you may also download the Bill Gilbert material for future reference:

Thanks again, Bill Gilbert! – Triple Milestones 2016 is another marvelous, well-done baseball assessment of how power baseball seems to change and stay the same in the near time annual picture of the game’s history. The same kind of dual presence of the status quo and change in the short term view was most probably also present back in the turn of the 20th century so-called dead ball era. There simply were not as many, if any, dedicated stat analysts back in those earlier times.
