CHECKING THE CAREER BATTING AVERAGE

We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of You’re Ducking Right. On June 4th, 2017 the first post was made. Many predictions have been made, some right, some wrong. We’re rapidly approaching the NBA’s off season with only the Raptors vs Warriors finals standing between us and the free agency frenzy awaiting the league. Before we get to the annual free agency prediction article, lets review how we’ve done in the past.

I have no doubt the city of New Orleans is partying like its Mardi Gras part deux right now. The franchise can now reasonably show Anthony Davis a reason not to leave. If they can retain Davis, Julius Randle, AND add Zion Williamson, that forms a very, very dynamic front court. That being said, we’ve got some posts being worked on, division by division review of the NFL, NBA final 4 thoughts, the meltdown of the Celtics,…
