    If a single AB (at bat) was equivalent to a person which you had a one-on-one conversation with about Christ and asked them if they were interested in giving their life to Christ, and a H (hit) was if someone responed with a yes, who among the Evangelistic Christians in the forum would be Ty Cobb and who would be Rob Deer?

    If there are many of you out there with relatively high averages, we will next be calculating your slugging percentage, with a home run being someone you've converted eventually being ordained as a Priest, Minister, Reverend or Pastor. I'm still trying to figure out what to equate backsliders as, so bear with me.

    Rob Deer? What part of your subconscious did you dredge that name up from? Mr. Deer had a .220 lifetime batting average. Of course, both Cobb and Deer played for the Tigers.

    I think Mario Mendoza may be an even more apt study in futility than Mr. Deer, although I didn't have to watch him flail about like rwingett probably did.

    Hey, what is that supposed to mean?

    Mendoza had a .215 lifetime batting average.

    Hence Deer was the superior ballplayer strictly speaking from a batting average point of view.

    You don't use the word "hence" when you're talking about sports.
    Better to know about sports and talk like a geek than to know nothing about them and talk like a longshoreman's b@stard son.

    Verily, I say that the right honorable Mr. Deer hit 230 homeruns, whilst Mr. Mendoza hitteth only 4.

    Rob Deer was the only player to ever, in one season, have more strikeouts than his batting average.

    Any of you Evangelists wanna weigh in with your guesses?

    I think if one of you has even one hit, then you would be the Ty Cobb of the group.

    Ummm....that was not directed at YOU personally sasquatch. It was a general comment.

    Would agnostics be considered "free agents" in the battle of religious supremacy?

    What about ex-professionals turned steriod-exposing, satirical sports columnist? I had a few RBI's (reprobates batted in) on the mission field.

    What do you think Jesus Christ's actual batting average would be if he played in the MLB? How about Satan? How much would a Moses rookie card be worth? Would each pack come with a slice of eucharist?
