The Toughest Out in Baseball

In last night's Twins-Yankees game Fox broadcaster Tim McCarver called Ichiro Suzuki "the toughest out in baseball". Is that so?

Not really. If you define the "toughest out" as the person who makes the fewest outs per plate appearance then Suzuki actually ranks 12th. Here are the leaders

Outs Outs/PA
Bonds 238 0.388
Helton 357 0.527
Berkman 372 0.546
Drew 360 0.562
Thomas 175 0.565
Snow 233 0.567
Abreu 401 0.568
Walker 181 0.569
Edmonds 348 0.576
Pujols 396 0.580
Mora 363 0.582
Suzuki 442 0.584

The strange thing about this list is that 9 of the top 10 are all in the National League. You'll also notice that because Suzuki had so many at bats (702) he also made the most outs in baseball. Of course, this list is in the same order as a list in descending order by on base percentage.
