I wouldn't respect the guy, .400 or not. We don't need cowards in bb. Ted Williams was at .399 with a doubleheader left in 41. I believe he got a hit in his 1st to abs, putting him over .400. They wanted to take him out for the year, but he said no way. I'm not backing into it. Ted had a huge double header and finished at .406. I respect the decision to play, and not back into it, way more then the actual .400

I really think the media would kill any chance for .400 now. The prssure would be enormous, even for a cool guy like Ichiro. They would have daily ab updates on ESPN, and tons of reporters hounding him every game. The pressure imo would be staggering. Ted in 41 had nothing like todays media world.


Kinda like what happened when they were chasing 61?


You can go quite a few games and not homer, and hit 61. Plus 2 guys were going at it in 98, kind of easing it on 1 guy only. Imo, hitting streaks and .400 are tougher. You can't have a bad week or 2 and hit .400. Every ab is crucial in a .400 run. Not really so in a race to 61.

Just to throw it out there, I wish we would discuss batting averages on the terms of percentages, such as beltran is batting 27.8 % or Maur is at 37.5%, would make things alot easier, enough with the thousanth of a decimal, enough.

Kind of like what happened when it looked like he might be even remotely close to breaking the single-season hits record?

I'd much rather say that Mauer is batting "three seventy-five" than that he's batting "thirty-seven point five percent..." O:-)

By using 37.5%, you're not losing that thousanth of a decimal...it's still in the number. :-?
