"Co" Player of the Week? I hope Jose puts more effort into his game so that he can win the award outright next time.:tongue:

Congrats, Abreu! :gulp:

With Seattle’s Kyle Seager.
The first White Sox player to win the honor since Alejandro De Aza on July 8-14, 2013.

His BABIP is only .240 so he, uhh, has room to improve?

When the weather warms up and balls start flying out of the Cell . . .

Well deserved. I still don't dare to extrapolate his numbers over the whole season. It makes me giddy...:D:

I think that's due to an uncanny number of hits leaving the park.

A hit that leaves the park is still a hit and would not lower his BABIP.

Scary thing is he is already leading the AL in HR%

Not true. If those homers were doubles he'd have a higher BABIP (.342 vs .246):
