Over last 3 yrs, the highest batting average in MLB (w 800 PA) is Howie Kendrick --.325. In that time his slash is .325/.373/.516. Almost IDENTICAL in '17-'19 to Jose Altuve: .321/.385/.517. Howie isn't just good, he's a secret STAR. And w Oct off days, he can play every day.
My col: Nats defenestrate 106-win Dodgers to reach NLCS w cardiac G5 comeback led by Howie (Slam) Kendrick, Rendon, Soto, Corbin. Kershaw is Oct goat for 5th time! LA mgr Roberts --malfeasance in office. DC wins 1st post-season series since '24. Hold on!
