BACON race update

September 2nd, 2011 by pbr

It’s September, which means we’re in the home stretch for various important races, like the one to see who will be the 2011 BACON champion.

It’s really anybody’s race in both leagues with just .006 of a BACON separating Robinson Cano from Jacoby Ellsbury.  These things can change a lot within the course of a month – last year Ichiro trailed Adrian Beltre by .025 in the BACON race, but finished the season with the BACON title, while Beltre fell to 4th.

Batter BACON AB HBP 0 hit games
Robinson Cano .831 528 10 26
Jacoby Ellsbury .825 543 8 27
Ryan Braun .818 468 4 25
Miguel Cabrera .813 486 3 29
Shane Victorino .810 411 6 23
Jose Reyes .804 445 0 22
Hunter Pence .800 506 1 28
Michael Young .798 540 2 31
Joey Votto .796 496 4 36
Michael Bourn .795 541 3 30

As usual, you can keep up to date with the season BACON statistics every day on the BACON page here, but keep in mind that those standings include more than just the “qualified” players. To qualify for things like the batting title, and the BACON title, a player needs at least 3.1 plate appearance per game his team has played.
