Continuing my perusal of White Sox batters’ individual efforts on the season, Luis Robert, Jr. once again inspires a Sporcle: this time, about OPS. Robert’s OPS of .857 led the White Sox, and by a healthy margin: Jake Burger was runner up with an .806 OPS, and he was moved at the trade deadline. (For those wondering, Burger ended the season with an OPS of .828, so it wouldn’t have been quite the gap noted above.)
Today’s Sporcle will task you with naming other OPS stalwarts (and one-offs): in franchise history, 100 White Sox batters have logged an OPS of at least .850 while qualifying for the batting title. How many can you name? Good luck!
- As noted above, to make the cut a player must have qualified for the batting title. That would be a big reason why no batter from 2021 or 2022 made the cut.
- I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the season, OPS, and position of the player in question.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- 7 player seasons on this list led the league in OPS.
- Player seasons to log 200+ hits? Also 7.
- 1 player season managed to make this list while hitting 0 home runs (1940, SS).
