Does Bonds have a shot at .400??

Postby LCBOY » Sat Apr 24, 2004 11:09 pm

Just a thought. Barry already has 24 walks in 16 games. If he were to play 140 games he would end up with 210 walks. He could end with less that 400 official at bats. To hit .400 over 400 ABs would require 160 hits (160/400=.400). Here are Barry's hit totals since 2000:

2000: 147 (143 games)
2001: 156 (153 games)
2002: 149 (143 games)
2003: 133 (130 games)


Right now he is 21/40. So needs to go 139/360 which is a .386 avg. the rest of the way. Now, I know it's still a LONG shot given that his single season best average is .370, but I believe that it is still within the realm of possibility. What do you guys think?

Well if he gets close to 4.00 that really will be something ... :-b

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Last year when Jim Edmonds was hitting .412 at the end of april Herold Reynolds was talking about how he had a chance......at the end of the year he was hitting under .300.

Its possible, but as the above example indicates, its very unpredictable.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Well... Bonds is not Edmonds. Bonds stikes out far less than Edmonds. But you are right, it is early. I wouldn't consider a run at .400 serious until August. Since 1980 only two players were about .400 after August. George Brett in 1980 was above .400 until September 18th. John Olerud in 1993 was above .400 until August 2nd.

I wouldn't like to see him do it, but its certainly possible, although I think he'll come a bit short. I'm going to predict .380 (note: not based on anything, just a number I thought sounded good ;-) )
