Carlos. Lee. Best. Season. Ever.
Very subtly, Carlos Lee is having his best season in the majors this year. Compare his career stats here. Note that he: (1) has his highest career batting average; (2) has his highest career on-base percentage; (3) has his highest career slugging percentage; (4) is on pace to tie his career-high 31 home runs; and (5) has already tied his career-high in doubles, 35, and is on pace to hit 42 doubles this year.
If you sprinkled in about 10 more walks over the course of the season for Carlos Lee his stats would look a lot like Magglio Ordonez circa 2000/2001.
