I don't want to be a downer but I don't think he will be able to stay above .400. Hes gotten older and he keeps on getting hurt.

My prediction is .378

Wow that is very high. I am thinking closer to .340 if he doesn't hurt. Possibly .350 if he gets hurt resulting in less AB. There is no way he can keep up this pace.

Unless a player is flirting with .450 around the All-Star Break, I don't think theres any chance of going nearly the whole season >.400

I'll go against the grain and say he does it.

Well, that's assuming he'll go down in the second half. Remember, that's not a given. Ted Williams was hitting .393 as late as July 19 in his 1941 campaign.

Well, I think Curious George is comparing it to today's game. You can't compare the game today to Ted's era. Just off the top of my head, I think it is much easier to hit for a high average in Ted's era than it is today. Back then, a SP would pitch complete games a lot more often. So a batter will see a pitcher 4-5 times per game. There were also less teams back then so a batter will see pitchers a lot more often than today's game. After Williams hit .402 or so, a lot of people didn't make a big deal out of it because they assume it will happen again. In today's game, a batter will probably see a SP 3 times per game and then the relievers would come in. So I think Torpedo comparison is valid. Maybe not flirting with .450, but definitely a little over .400 by the ASB like .410 or so.
