Fun With Numbers

In addition to the “Holliday” puns that FireJayMariotti pointed out, I had one small observation with Michael Knisley’s write-up of the Rockies/Padres game.

Holliday's triple in the bottom of the 13th was his second hit of the long night, and clinched the 2007 NL batting championship. He finished with an average of .3396226, slightly better than Chipper Jones’ .3372319; and he finished, too, as the league's top run producer with 137 RBIs.

Is there a need to bring that out to 4 additional decimals? To me, when that third number is different, you’re done.

The AL race was not as tight, as shown below:
1. Magglio Ordonez – .363025210084034
2. Ichiro Suzuki - .351032448377581
