Steve Lombardozzi is fascinating and I am not even talking about hit “grit” rating (which is off the charts).  To lead the league in certain category is something worth noting right?  Steve Lombardozzi lead MLB in the obscure category of least pitches per plate appearance; by the way, it is not even close.  He averaged 3.18 pitches per plate appearance, the next closest guy is A.J Pierzynski at 3.27 and the closest comp would be fellow 2nd baseman Jose Altuve at 3.28 who swings at everything.  To put that into perspective, that is Vlad Guerrero territory. For a while this season he was less than 3 pitches per at bat, which would be legendary.
