Back when John Buck was a Royal, he got off to a hot start one year and that led the Kansas City Star to wonder if John Buck could hit .400. Since John Buck had never hit .300 over a full season, it seemed unlikely. Turned out it was; Buck’s best season left him 119 points short of .400 and as of this writing Buck has a lifetime average of .234.
Overreacting to early season numbers is generally a mistake.
Things change rapidly at this point of a baseball season. Eric Hosmer entered Tuesday night’s game hitting .275—if you want to overreact that could be cause for concern. Hosmer picked up four hits and ended the game hitting .311—overreact and you might start talking batting title.
