    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.
    Your Second Base Coach
    Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. Thatís equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.

    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?
