Season 20 League Leaders

The regular season is in the books for Season 20, so let's take a look at the league leaders!

In the American League, Kansas City duo Joey Ryan (Batting Average, OBP and OPS) and Dustan Jackson (RBI and Runs) dominated the leader board, while Luis Alarcon also led multiple categories (Home Runs and SLG). In the National League, Greg Riley had a most impressive season, leading the NL in Home Runs, RBI, Hits, SLG and OPS.  Wow!  Pepe Guillen captured the batting title, while leading the NL in OBP. Here's the complete offensive league leaders.

In the American League, the dominant pitcher once again was James Haselman,who lead the league in ERA, Wins, Strikeouts, WHIP and Quality Starts.  His 0.90 WHIP was the 5th best all time, and his 28 quality starts tied for 5th best all time.  I think it's safe to say, a record breaking 5th Cy Young Award is in his future.  Also worth a mention, Paulie Flynn tied for 2nd best all time in Complete Games with 10 and set a new record for shutouts with 5.  Very impressive!  In the National League,  Willie Arredondo tied the mark for 5th most Wins with 23, while Rusty Hogan led the league in ERA and WHIP.
