A Few Remarkable Barry Bonds Stats

Bonds led the NL in walks 11 times, but led it in the other major counting stats only 4 times: twice in homers, once in RBIs, and once in runs scored. All the walks, and Bonds missing at least 15 games most years after 1998, meant he never had more than 500 at-bats in any year after that 1998 season. He had 2558 walks, close to as many as his 2935 hits. He had more walks than hits almost every year after 2000. For his career, he scored 2227 runs vs. 1996 RBIs, with 38% of those RBIs attributed to driving himself in on 762 homers. My guess is that of all the batters in the 500-homer club, Bonds is the one with the largest gap between his runs scored and his RBIs.

Here are some exceptional walk to strikeout ratios in Bonds’s career: 198 to 47 in 2002, 232 to 41 in 2004, and 132 to 54 in 2007. Bonds struck out 100 times in a season just once, in his rookie year, 1986.
