<If this is average, I guess that you're only calling Babe Ruth pretty good :-)
Sorry I missed this before. Lemme see......The most times Babe Ruth struck out
in a season was 93, in 1923, while batting .393, with 45 doubles, 13 triples,
41 HR's and 131 RBI's. Mac has k'd over 100 times in a season 7 times already,
well on his way to the 8th. He has averaged about 1 k per 4 ab over his career
while hitting over .300 only once in a season (100+ games). Ruth's career k's
per ab ratio was about 7 to 1 and in 100+ game seasons, only batted under .300
twice in 15 seasons and those were .288 & .290 with a career average of .342!
Aside from a whole slew of other stats, there's also the fact that Ruth was a
terriffic pitcher. In 1916 he was 23-12 with a 1.75 ERA starting 41 games and
in 1917 was 24-13 with a 2.01 ERA in 38 starts. While Mac & Ruth may have
played in the same league, Mac is clearly out of Ruth's league....
