Bird Land » Blog Archive » Title Bout: Jones v. Pujols: "In some corners of baseball, batting average has become the ostracized stat, bullied by its bigger, badder — and yes — better statistics into being a quaint novelty, a baseball-card affectation. But around here it still matters."

... Derrick Goold will be following the batting title race between Albert Pujols and Chipper Jones.

More stats. Blah. Should've been a CPA.

This race is cool, of course, but the hope is that it doesn't take over any headlines until the actual team(s) are out of the pennant and/or Wild Card races, respectively.

Betcha Jones and Pujols wouldn't mind trading some percentage points for a team win.
