    So he picked up the pace in 1997. Way to go, Vinnie!
    That would explain his 2.8 million dollar raise for the 1998 season.

    Code:
    1992 Atlanta Braves $109,000 
    1993 Colorado Rockies $120,000 
    1994 Colorado Rockies $192,500 
    1995 Colorado Rockies $265,000 
    1996 Colorado Rockies $1,200,000 
    1997 Colorado Rockies $2,225,000 
    1998 Colorado Rockies $5,025,000 
    1999 Colorado Rockies $6,000,000 
    2000 Tampa Bay Devil Rays $6,250,000 
    2001 Tampa Bay Devil Rays $7,250,000 
    2002 Atlanta Braves $3,000,000 
    2003 Atlanta Braves $5,000,000 
    2004 Colorado Rockies $2,100,000 
    2005 Washington Nationals $3,000,000

    True, but we generally look at only 3 digits.

    Yep, Lynn did it from 1984-1987 (23 homers). He and Boyer are the only two to do it four years in a row.

    Harold Baines (20), David Justice (21), Travis Fryman (22), Al Kaline (27), and Hank Aaron (44) are the only others that have hit the same number of homer 4 times in their career (not necessarily consecutive).

    Nobody has hit the same number (minimum of 20) five times in their career. If you drop the minimum to 10 then Harold Baines (16) and Ed Kranepool (10) have done it 5 times in their careers.
    Wow. Thanks for the info. How did you find this stuff?

    I just had Boyer, but nice catch with Fred Lynn.

    Another interesting tidbit:

    Benjie Molina

    2000 - AVG: .281
    HR: 14
    RBI: 71

    2003 - AVG: .281
    HR: 14
    RBI:71

    These two seasons were IDENTICAL in all three triple crown categories. I wonder if anything like that has happened before..

    Ken Boyer also did it from 1961 to 1964 (24 homers each year).
