Math That Doesn't Add Up

If a baseball player hits .250 all season and goes 1 for 4 in the last game, it is highly suspect if the league announces his average as .300. That is a fact.

But then, maybe some of his outs could be disregarded in order tho help him look better. If he finished the season 150 for 600 (.250) and the league took away 100 of his outs, he would be 150 for 500 (.300) and would be among the top hitters in the league and perhaps able to negotiate a nice raise on his next contract.

Now for the unemployment numbers...


  1. Some people would call you negative and a pessimist. I think a better word is realistic and aware. Did you see the one about consumer confidence also.

    Grace and peace.

  2. Don't be silly. Baseball is just a game. Politics is different, you know.


I welcome your comments. However, since this is a blog rather than an open forum, I will determine what is and what is not posted. All comments, especially anonymous comments, will be scrutinized carefully. I will not post comments that contain profanity or are negative toward the Scriptures, God, Christianity in general, Christian schools, or the United States of America. I also will not post comments that are nothing more than generally uninformed or absurd opinions. In addition, I will not post comments that are totally irrelevant to the subject being discussed. Finally, I will not post comments that are commercial advertisements or advertisements for religious organizations which are in conflict with my biblical convictions.
