League Averages

AVG OBP SLG OPS BABIP
.270 .336 .403 .739 .306

His splits are fairly balanced, although he did hit lefties a lot better than righties this year.  The high BABIP perhaps provides a little clue as to how a batter that entered the 2010 season with a career .280 batting average finished the year at .346.
