Team Contact

Listening to Dave Cameron on the Fangraph podcast, he explains that contact % (fair or foul contact per swing) is a fairly accurate early season stat. What are the contact percentages for ttfc?

 Introducing team contact:

Michael Brantley 93.7% (2nd in MLB behind Ichiro)
Asdrubal Cabrera 88.2%
Casey Kotchman 87.1%
Jason Kipnis 85.8%

The interesting player on the team contact list is Kotchman. Add his contact numbers with his .159 BABIP, and you see reason to believe that he will improve.
