Paul Konerko and the Rest of the over .350 Club: Who Is Most Likely to Hit .400?

Ted Williams hit .406 in 1941 for the Boston Red Sox. That was the last time an MLB player ever achieved the feat. Paul Konerko is on the verge of .400 after 45 games, hitting a stellar .399.

Over a quarter of the season has passed and there are a handful of players that have averages above .350, some of which you would not be surprised with and others that would shock anyone prior to this season.

An average over .350 is not that rare, in fact from 2008-2010 the MLB batting average leader hit over .360 and Josh Hamilton led the league in 2011 with a .359 average.

The question is still out there though, are any of these players capable of maintaining the average over the entire season and raising it a bit to get over .400? 

Let's take a look at the guys hitting over .350 in 2012 and which ones are the most likely to be chasing .400 as the season winds down.

We'll begin with the least likeliest and one of the most surprising name on the list, Melky Cabrera.
