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?
