I officially advocate the replacement of the term “average” in “batting average” with some of these terms based on the following criteria:

BA .315 = Batting Dandy

It seems the website deleted the middle of my comment? Let’s see if this works:

BA .315 = Batting Dandy

Hopefully third time’s the charm…

BA below .250 – Batting Participatory; BA .250-.270 – Batting Tolerable; BA .270-.285 – Batting Passable; BA .285-.300 – Batting Respectable; BA .300-.315 – Batting Nifty; BA below .315 – Batting Dandy

I’m bad at the internet. That last one should read “BA above .315.”

While he’s simply just a guy, the roster-filler of notgraphs, this article sufficiently bridged the gap between other unobjectionable writers and provided a passable – nay, dandy – reading experience.

Mickey Morandini was known as the Dandy Little Glove Man. He was also handsome in that classic William H. Macy sort of way.

Mickey Morandini was certainly the most opposite of handsome.
