April 25th 2012 16:59
So far this year the first baseman in the National League have been up and down. As we enter week four of the season I have complied my ranking of best 1B in the national league. My rankings are based all on offense. Guys who hit doubles, triples and HRs will get rewarded over singles.
Here are my Top 10 1B this year:
#10 Gaby Sanchez Miami 22 points
#9 Casey McGehee Pittsburgh 25 points
#8 Ty Wigginton Philadelphia 31 points
#7 James Looney Los Angeles 35 points
#6 Bryan Lahair Chicago 43 points great average .375 16k's kill him
#5 Adam Laroche Washington 44 points 13RBI's 17K's hurt
#4 Joey Votto Cincinnati 46 points 9RBIs 9Runs 5Doubles 17 walks all good 19k's hurt
#3 Todd Helton Colorado 48 points average is bad at .220 but puts ball in play. 10RBI's 4 doubles 3homeruns 7 runs scored only 7 strikeouts on season with six walks.
#2 Carlos Lee Houston 51 points 12 RBI's 3 doubles like Helton doesn't strike out much. Only six on year with seven walks. Gets the ball in play very important.
#1 Freddie Freeman Atlanta 53 points should have a commanding lead but strikeouts alot 21 times already this year. But his 15 RBI's 12 Runs 6Doubles and 3Homeruns give him enough to pass Lee.
This year will be tight. Look for Votto to inch his way up these rankings but for now its Freeman topping my list.
