Rocco2004 : lucky batter

Rocco Badelli shows up on the list of 2004 "luckiest" batters based on the difference between :

BABIP ( Batting Average on Balls in Play) and

LD (line drive outs)%

Basically, Rocco had a low line drive out %, and a high batting average for balls placed in play.

Be sure to check out the article, because they apply the same thing to pitchers. Victor Zambrano shows up on the luckiest pitchers. That Kazmir deal is looking better every day.
