Distressing Innumeracy

How can the people who run the scoreboard at Oakland's baseball stadium think that someone with three major-league at-bats can have a batting average of 0.200? That someone with ten at-bats can have a batting average of 0.275? This is very distressing indeed.

And the Network Associates Colosseum is no more. In its place we have the McAfeee Colosseum. I wonder if the first 10,000 paying customers get a free computer virus...
