BABIP Leaders & Laggards

The list of BABIP leaders looks very familiar by now. This week I included innings pitched, Ks, and BBs along with whether or not the pitchers start on Monday or Tuesday. Do not let this familiarity fool you into thinking these pitchers have defeated the BABIP. There is still 2/3s of the season left and that means each of these starters has twenty-two starts remaining.
