1. There were no league leader cards in the original 1985 Topps set, so I'd have to create my own template.
2. I did not feel like doing this.
3. With the exception of a few categories below, being a Phillies team leader during the 2015 season is the equivalent of receiving a participant ribbon at a youth sporting event.
4. As part of his year-ending suspension, Jonathan Papelbon has also been banned from appearing on any future Chachi cards.
Still, I wanted to at least memorialize the team leaders in a post. Listed below are the Phillies players who would have appeared on 2015 Chachi team leaders cards had they existed. This could be a one year lay-off for this subset if the 2016 Phillies team performs a little better.
Odubel Herrera - .297
Freddy Galvis - .263
This took some math work to determine since Ben Revere hit .298 but didn't have the required number of plate appearances to qualify for the team title. The same can be said for Maikel Franco (.280) and Cesar Hernandez (.272).
Home Run Leaders
Ryan Howard - 23
Maikel Franco - 14
Ryan Howard - 77
Maikel Franco and Freddy Galvis - 50
Stolen Base Leaders
Ben Revere - 24
Cesar Hernandez - 19
Aaron Harang - 4.86
This is the highest ERA to lead the team since Claude Willoughby had an ERA of 4.99 for the 1929 Phillies. No other Phillies pitcher had the requisite 162 innings pitched to qualify. Ken Giles had a 1.80 ERA in 70 innings.
Ken Giles, Cole Hamels, Aaron Harang and Aaron Nola - 6
This marks the first time in the history of Major League baseball that no one on a single team had at least 7 victories.
Cole Hamels - 137
Aaron Harang - 108
Jonathan Papelbon - 17 saves
Ken Giles - 15 saves
