The recent article on Ken Singleton by Fangraph's own David Laurila got me thinking this morning about the esthetic quality of the "slash line." Singleton's own unique skill set for example, his elite walk rate with only marginal power, lends to some really beautiful, if not odd-looking slash lines. If you take the time to give a cursory glance of his player page, you'll see exactly what I mean. In particular, it was his 1975 season that really jumped out at me:
.300/ .415/ .454
It has an exotic feel to it, doesn't it?
