  • Jimmy Rollins was 3-7 this weekend. He finished the season with 212 hits in 716 at bats. He officially makes the list of players amassing 200 hits in season while batting below .300, though he places above Juan Pierre's record for the lowest batting average. He also set the record for most plate appearances in a single season with 778 (passing Lenny Dykstra's 773 in 1993).

  • Rickie Weeks was 2-9 with a walk. His batting average stayed at .235 and his on base percentage slid to .374. A while ago I put up an entry dealing with similar players. I also posted one about the highest slugging percentages among players with low batting averages.

So at the end of the day, the Cubs offense was better without Barrett, and, in fact, during the same period the Cubs catchers were better than the Milwaukee catchers. Interesting...

Yep. Imagine how good they would have been had Soto been on the team since Barrett left. Take Soto's 58 PA out and it's a .212/.295/.307 line.
