The Magic of the 'Meter'




ok folks..our low BA's have harkened me back to '97..yes the 'freak show' and one Shawon Dunston . in acquiring him from the Cubs we also acquired the "shawon-o-meter" . you see on April 21st of '97 , Mr Dunston 'checked in' with a .125 avg and a .125/.155/.196 line. Pirate-esque no doubt , but once the Shawon-o-meter kicked in , he was on a roll and finished the year at .300/.312/.451... including a robust .394 in 74PA's for the Battlin' Bucs.

so rather than stating the obvious and putting up the 'B&B board' (Barajas + Barmes) or the "Alvarez Account" , i say we do this on a team level and make it very visible so the players are reminded that their team average is .200 and can delight in the fact that maybe , just maybe that can kick up to .210 by week's end and watch the magic that is the 'meter' do its unrivaled work.

Please submit your name ideas for this 'meter' and maybe we'll take it through the proper channels, of which i have no clue where those channels may be, and see if we can get a visible sign up somewhere at PNC and everywhere else for that matter.

LETS GO BUCS!!
