    I think he trimmed his 'fro a bit in '84 and could see that ball better.
    He was never close to Oscar Gamble, but I remember him having some pretty good volume on that thing.

    In both the '67 and '68 seasons, Bob Bailey had 322 AB and 73 hits for the Dodgers. His OPS+ was actually a bit over 100 for '68 despite the .227 BA, that being a terrible year for hitters all around.

    Did Baseball-reference change their stats? I could swear that a few years ago it said that Murray had FOUR consecutive 156 OPS+ seasons.

    Murray will have to take second place. There was a pitcher in the 1940-50s named Eddie Lopat, known as "steady Eddie".

    John Gochnauer had eerily similar back to back seasons(he only played three years,but he only appeared in 3 games his rookie season).Gochnauer batted .185 with 16 doubles,4 triples,and no homers in 1902,in 1903 he again batted .185 with 16 doubles,4 triples,and no homers!As a side note,in 1903 he set the 20th century record of most errors by a fielder in one season with 98.

    Anyone else have any observations of strange, abnormal, or coincidental stats?
