Justian Christian's MLB career batting average is .500

Unfortunately, so is his fielding average.


If he keeps this up, according to Baseball Reference projections, over a 162-game season, Christian will have 162 doubles and 324 RBIs, both of which will be new all-time records!

Not to mention the .500 batting average would be pretty decent, too.

And yet-- big statistics alert here -- it's not the best BA he's ever achieved.

You want stats? Goddammit, we'll give you stats.

In 2004, playing for the Gulf Coast League Yankees, over 3 games, Justin batted .571.

Over his 5-year minor league career, he has stolen 191 bases, an 85 percent rate of success.

He has been intentionally walked 3 times.

His first year, playing 2B, he made 24 errors.

Yankee Employee of the Month for June?

Luckily, this Christian rookie is only about 30 years old. Another of our 1.5 tool, "can't miss" prospects with high ceilings ( who can have a higher ceiling than Jesus, by the by)?

This Christian is Andy Phillips
( whom we shall be seeing at Shea stadium this weekend in a Mets' uniform )with more foot speed and less bat.

This guy reminds me of my best friend's first day at Columbia Business School....... A guy comes up to her and introduces himself, " Hi there. I'm Christian ."

"Glad to meet you," she said. "I'm Jewish."
