That was a career year along the lines of a Brady Anderson career year. Expansion = peds?
Cork.

Though, of course, he used cork for most of his career, so it really does not.explain .361.

I thought perhaps Shoeless Joe, Lefty O'Doul, Babe Herman, or maybe Al Simmons.

Babe Herman was a winner, in 1930!

3 games. 5 runs per side.

A Phillies-Red Sox World Series could be very interesting, if both teams manage to get that far - which it is far too early to predict.

Todays quiz:


Mookie Betts has a chance to do something only 12 others have done in MLB history

.350 BA
.425 on base %
.650 SLG%

Who are the other 12?

Who are the only 2 two to do it twice (one easy, one tough)?

So, Kiid...

I'm up to 21 of them (post 1899). Did you invert the digits? And more than two who did it twice and a bunch of others with more than twice.

What gives?

In other words, the Red Sox are the personification of Betts, who is threatening to join an elite group: Players who have finished a season with at least a .350 batting average, a .425 on-base percentage and a .650 slugging percentage. The last to do it was Albert Pujols and before that Barry Bonds. Others include Babe Ruth (eight times), Lou Gehrig, Rogers Hornsby, Jimmie Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, George Brett, Stan Musial, Joe DiMaggio and, of course, Larry Walker twice.



Never did like Passan (though in fairness he did say "including")

Oh well - gave you idiots something to do

It appears the only idiot was you in that you accepted Passan's information as accurate and complete without checking.

Right. We're idiots because you misinterpreted something a sportscaster wrote, deciding he was complete and changing what he said while you were at it.

I take it that you are not up to trying to figure out the other 8.

That's fine.

I thought it was a good and interesting puzzle, despite the misleading (okay, bogus) clues.

Here's a clue. At least 3 people did it in the same year.
