Wanted to start a discussion on the possibility of seeing another 400 hitter and reasons behind your thinking. If my memory serves me correctly, the last hitter to flirt with 400 late in the season was George Brett (maybe Rod Carew?). The point is it has been a long time. Personally, I doubt we will see another 400 hitter. I blame it on the managers. Pitchers are pulled sooner these days and you'll see a manager bring in a pitcher for one batter only for the match up. It seems pretty common for a manager to use 3-4 pitchers in a game these days. It's not like the pitchers are throwing the ball faster or putting more movement on the ball than years past.
