Varitek and Boomer Scott

With Varitek approaching Mondoza'ism, I recalled that George Scott was under .200 one year. I checked it out and found that in 1968 he batted .171 but only played in 124 games with 350 AB. He was coming off two pretty good first seasons with the Sox. However, as we (some of us) 1968 was the year of the pitcher. That was probably the most dominating year for pitchers since the early days, before batters learned to hit.

That was Bob Gibson's greatest season. In 1969, they lowered the mound from 16 inches to 10 inches,.
