    HR list

    At the end of the 1998 season, when baseball fans looked at the career HR list, they must have thought that it was a typo when it came to the number 286. What was so unusual about the list following that season?

    I'm guessing more than one guy was tied with 286 homeruns?

    Bingo

    What are the odds that The Big Hurt would finish a season with that total?

    That's about what I get; what conditions did you include?

    I think Jim and Gaylord Perry had the exact same W-L record or something similar at a certain point in their careers

    from September 22 to September 26, 1975, Gaylord and Jim Perry’s career records were identical, 215-174.”

    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)
