I was listening to John Sterling and Suzyn (sic) Waldman call Opening Day in the Bronx yesterday. It seemed like everytime they described a Yankee batter, they said "last year he hit .270." Jeter... A-Rod... Gardner... I think someone else I can't remember... all batted .270.
I am sure there is some conspiracy involving the Mayan calendar about that.
Of course they also said about each batter "He is due for a big breakout season this year." The whole damn team will break out. Unless of course the days of players in their mid 30s suddenly improving have ended.
Maybe they will all bat .271.
