Gossip and celebrity worship should more than make-up for Hank's lost income from coaching Tiger.

Since major league baseball players haven't been able to beat Ted Williams' . 406 Batting average for about 70 years, shouldn't baseball players have physicists guide them to adjust for slumps, and hitting to different fields to adjust for batting 4 for 4 one day and not get a hit for dozens of games. What good are the present coaches anyway? It obvious that broadcasters are clueless about how to make adjustments because all those broadcasters use the phrase: "He swung through the pitch." when a batter strikes out. swinging." Baseball is a science and they need adjustments in their swings and adjustments every day.
