The 60/40 club

Much was made of the fact that B.J. Upton and Carl Crawford were the only two players in the league to hit at least 60 extra base hits and steal at least 40 bases in 2010.  Since 1950, that feat has happened on 51 times and here is the list of the times it has happened that will help put this feat into perspective.  Sadly, Upton has the lowest batting average of anyone on this list, by a large margin.
