Default Will Joe Mauer hit .400?

Going into today he's batting .388 and it's rising fast. Will he it .400?

NO WAY... nobody in the modern era will hit .400

there should be no votes for yes

id love to see almost anyone do it just because of the great accomplishment it would be, but it more than likely wont happen. Maybe someday, maybe this year..... i couldnt tell you. But there is a very very very slim chance it does

Why? This kid is simply amazing and while I agree that he definitely won't hit 400, there's always a chance. Plus the fact that he can hit lefties and righties almost equally gives him an extra edge.

Both those records were broken by players that were using performance enhancing drugs, i.e. McGwire admitted to using andro when he broke that record and we all know about Bonds.

Post steroid era those records are not gonna be broken

Ha, yeah I remember that. People in the media were saying how dumb we were for taking the guy most had rated at about 8 instead of the consensus #1 Prior. Thank god Pohlad's cheap in this case!

Yeah several players have gotten off to great starts before, injuries prevent them from breaking records. When someone is juicing, they can recover quicker from injuries.

It's only early June and he isn't hitting .400. If someone in the modern era is gonna hit .400, they have to hit over .400 in the first half of the season.

He's the only good hitter on the Twins. I wish we could keep him, Liriano, Santana, and Nathan and just trade away everyone else.

Not a chance, zero, zip, nada. He'll hit a max of around .350 and that's about it.
