Joey Votto is at 78%
Josh Hamilton is at 72.4%
Adrian Gonzalez is at 78%
Curtis Granderson is at 76.8%

For comparison, Robinson Cano and Albert Pujols both sit in the high 80s for their career. Make what you want of it.

3% difference. Big whoop.

Thank you, come again.
Well hold on, we need someone with those contact rates as well as that strikeout ratio. On their own these are pretty meaningless. None of the players on that list also K at a 5:1 ratio versus walks.
