Early season Splendid Splinters....

Posted at 12:29 PM on May 17, 2006 by David Zingler

Itís May 17 and baseballís best hitters are Indians OF Casey Blake in the AL and Braves catcher Brian McCann in the NL. A career .263 hitter, Blake is currently hitting a Tony Gwynn-like .366, but will he even be above .300 at seasonís end? The 22-year-old McCann meanwhile, is batting at a .349 clip. Where will this highly touted, but unproven prospect level off at?

Iíll put Blake at .277 and McCann at .292 when the seasonís final gun sounds, but for now Iíll just enjoy baseballís early season quirkiness.
