John Benesch on the 2006 Sporting News Baseball Guide
Received my 2006 TSN Guide in the mail yesterday.
In identifying the SL batting leaders, TSN lists “Young” as the Slugging Leader at .545. There is a Christopher Young [
There is also a Delmon Young [
By adding the shortfall ['ghost' appearances] to his ABs  we come up with a Slugging Average of .568 [192 TB's / 338 ABs].
By this process, the Southern League 2005 'Slugging' leader should be Delmon Young [actual figure: .582].
This, of course, is not a Sporting News error, but an error on the part of the statisticians. Most people never check to see if theoretical PAs would make somebody a league leader in either batting or slugging.
