  • 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?
    "(Shoeless Joe Jackson's fall from grace is one of the real tragedies of baseball. I always thought he was more sinned against than sinning." -- Connie Mack

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

        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)
