Chicago third baseman Jon Guillot, for example, just hit the 100-day mark and is now one year closer to free agency. Guillot, 22, is batting a soft .236 so far this season, but has shone in other areas, such as his 12 home runs (2nd on the team), 41 RBIs (to lead the team), and one of his best talents, hitting first pitches: he is batting .304 (including 2 home runs) on first pitches.
