Can McCutchen hit .400? – July 24 UPDATE!Posted: July 24, 2012
Hey, you know how everyone’s talking about whether Andrew McCutchen can hit .400 this year?* Well, he’s had another 25 ABs since my original post, so I thought I would do a quick update on where he’s at.*everyone may not be talking about this. I didn’t have time for a survey.
This is complex math, guys. You can’t do these calculations yourself.**you can probably do these calculations yourself
Current – .373 – 129 for 346
Rest of Year Update – 589 ABs, 236 hits needed (I’m still using my projection of 155 games)
So that’s 107 for 243, or a .440 average over the rest of the year. This isn’t getting any easier, McCutchen.
Bonus Brendan Ryan Update: Needs to go 123 for 169 to finish at .400, which is a .728 average. He’s going to need to pull up those socks.
