Jeff Keppinger’s anti-strikeout crusade

The Rays jack-of-all trades Jeff Keppinger has forced me to include an additional roster spot on the 2nd Half AL All-Star team.  Starring at first, second and third base for Tampa Bay this season while posting a .342 Batting Average with 26 Doubles (pace) during their playoff chase really leaves me no choice.

Also, I really respect Jeff’s unstated goal of eliminating the strikeout:

Rk            Player   AB/SO   AB From   To  BB  SO
1        Juan  Pierre 16.0781 7203 2000 2012 450 448

5       Paul  Lo  Duca 13.2737 3783 2000 2008 256 285
