    Edgar Martinez for triples.

    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.

    That number "WAR" does NOT measure wins above replacement. I am not sure what it measures, but it sure isn't the value between a player and his back-up. The final number certainly does not measure what the name suggests.

    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...

    Maury Wills?

    Schmidt, Konerko, and Wills are correct. I've updated the OP.

    Garret Anderson?

    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.

    Both incorrect.

    I've said it before...the walks guy is from the Deadball era.
