.294 And Rising
.294 is a pretty good batting average as far as batting average goes. Everyone seemed pretty pleased with Spidercam's .294 mark last season, which happened to match Steve Garvey's career average. When it comes to team win percentage, though, .294 is a horse of another color. A very ugly color. We're talking about a baby poop green horse here. But you know what? It's better than .250, just the way .250 was better than .200 before that. What I'm trying to say is we're on the upswing. We'll be at Tony's career average before you know it, then his '94 average, and before you know it our winning percentage starts looking like good slugging percentages. Faith: keep it!
