More Hardball took some time to check out the stats of the AL and NL for you and bring to light some things you might not have known.
*Josh Hamilton's average of .361 is 26 points higher than 2nd place Miguel Cabrera. Considering he won't be playing much over the final weeks of the season the batting title is pretty much in the bag for him.
*Jose Bautista has blasted 46 homeruns, 10 more than 2nd place Paul Konerko.

*Daniel Bard has been the best setup man with 29 holds.
*Dexter Fowler leads the league in triple with 12, but only has 377 at bats.
*Jayson Werth's 44 doubles lead the league. His previous career best was 26.
*Michael Bourn has become quite the theft, swiping 50 bags, 17 more than anybody else in the league.
