.344/.397/.741 over 294 PA's.
First by my calculation over that span (Aug 22, 2009 to Aug 19, 2010), Janish posted a slash line of .248/.326/.391 in 288 PA's. But inexplicably that arbitrary split contained the 50+PA's from his two week 2010 August out of body stretch (slash line of .326/.392/.500 over a span of 52 PA's) and completely ignores his final 95 PAs of 2010 in which he posted a slash line of .218/.284/.310. If the actual goal of discussing Janish in the context of this thread is to estimate his true skill level as reasonably as possible, arbitrary splits like above should be avoided in favor of all of the data.
For instance, adding in those post Aug 19th, 2010 PAs causes his slash line to become: .241/.316/.371.
