Patience and Power

We were looking for active players who are patient, have dynamic batting skills, and are young enough to be relatively dependable. So, the criteria we chose were:

- Minimum 500 career Plate Appearances
- Minimum 13.5% career BB%
- Minimum 125 career wRC+
- Younger than 35 years old today (Feb 23, 2011)

Unless our calculations are incorrect, and they really could* be, below is an exclusive club.

Cust's agent should bring
 this up next offseason.
Albert Pujols
Adam Dunn
Jason Heyward
Jack Cust**

That's it. That's the list.

*As usual, please let us know in the comments section if we've omitted anyone.

**One more thing on Jack Cust, here are the Career BB% Leaders over the past 25 years, min 500 PA's:

1. Barry Bonds: 20.3%
2. Jack Clark: 20.1%
3. Ken Phelps: 18.1%
4. Jack Cust: 17.3%

Thanks to Fangraphs for the stats.
