What are the Odds?

Sunday August 23, 2009

What are the odds that at the end of any given game that four players on one team will have the EXACT same batting average?

How about the odds that the 1st three batters in the order for one team would have the exact same batting average.

At the end of today's loss to the St Louis Cardinals, four Padres players had an identical .272 batting average.

#1 - Everth Cabrera, #2 - Tony Gwynn, #3 - Adrian Gonzales, #6 Will Venable.

Spooky isn't it.

Nearly as spooky as the fact that the Padres just cannot beat the Cardinals. 2 seasons, 14 games, 1 win.
