Hank White mercilessly screwed by Bob Rosenberg

Unfairly robbed of his second hit as a Cub by an unfair, unfeeling and unseemly arbitrary ruling by Wrigley Field official scorer Bob Rosenberg, Hank White’s batting average now rests at a slightly disappointing .067.  But given the fallible nature of batting average, here at Desipio we decided to do something about it.  We have created a new, more accurate way of calculating a player’s batting average.  Called the Hank White Equivalent Batting Average (HWEqBA), our new formula takes into account hard hit balls that don’t fall n for hits, bad scorer’s decisions, tremendous defensive plays robbing the batter of a hit and even good swings that just fall short of making actual contact.  We will monitor Henry’s HWEqBA all season long, in our never ending quest to give you the most accurate bullshit possible.
