McInnis for home runs?, Is he close?
Doc Cramer for extra base hits or home runs? Ernie Lombardi for triples? Mark McGwire or Harmon Killebrew for singles?
Larry bowa for home runs?
Pudge has to be the worst for walks..that guy never drew a walk.
extra base hits...ozzie smith?
Frank Thomas for triples?
All three are incorrect, willshad.
Edgar Martinez for triples.
"I never saw anyone like Ty Cobb. No one even close to him. He was the greatest all time ballplayer. That guy was superhuman, amazing."
Fewest Singles... per at-bat... here are three candidates (guesses from me):
Barry Bonds, Mike Schmidt, Harmon Killebrew. I did not read all the other posts so forgive me if anything was repeated.
The triples is likely a trick question ( a recent member to the 2,000 hit club ).
How about Paul Konerko?
And for doubles, how about the guy who would hit a lot of singles and then steal second base to make up for the lack of doubles...

Schmidt, Konerko, and Wills are correct. I've updated the OP.
Extra base hits. Since Bowa has "won" the HR competition, I'd think he's a pretty good bet as the XBH "winner" too. He was a mediocre hitter for average with very little power. The only thing that might hurt is that he was pretty fast, and I remember him getting a fair amount of triples. Anyway, I'll try Larry Bowa.
Wooo Hooo... I nailed three of 'em.
Is Garrett Anderson the one with the fewest walks?
