Heat Index for Hottest Hitters

As of today (Sunday), here are the temperatures for the hottest hitters in baseball, according to Bill James' index:

    • Alfonso Soriano
    • 124°
    • Lance Berkman
    • 111°
    • Josh Hamilton
    • 108°
    • Dan Uggla
    • 103°

You might recall that I wrote a piece about Bill James' heat index for hitters a few days ago when Berkman was at his peak.Link  At that time, Berkman's temperature was 123 degrees.  Alfonso Soriano now is just about as hot as Berkman was last week....and he is coming into Minute Maid Park to play the Astros.  Josh Hamilton and Soriano and Berkman are the three hottest hitters in baseball.  The Astros faced Hamilton this weekend as he reached his temperature peak, and was the hottest hitter.  Now the Astros face Soriano as he is peaking.  If you like hitters, it's quite a treat to watch Berkman hit against Soriano and Hamilton in consecutive series.  (OK, I know he hitting against pitchers, and not literally against them...but you get the point.)
