Nobody in the current era like

Boone .578
Kent .596
Ryno
Morgan

Roger Hornsby was one, someone in 1884 (don't recall his name, and another 2b pre 1950.

Yeah, I heard them talking about this today when the Yanks were playing the O's. The funny thing is, whenever they brought this topic up, he hit a solo jack. ;-D

Sure Shot Dunlap was the 1884 guy. I'm pretty sure Nap LaJoie had a .600+ SLG% season in there somewhere. Not sure if thats the pre-1950 guy you were thinking of or not.

Tavish, good call. You always know the old timers lol. ;-D
Nap did it in 1901. Been a long time sine Hornsby was the last to do it at 2b. Kent got real close.

The biggest shock to me was that Soriano didn't even come close in his near 40/40 season. Just goes to show how difficult it is for a player to make that mark, especially in the leadoff spot. 39HR, 50+ doubles and a .300 BA and still didn't even break .550 Slg%.

Bat is hot right now... I wonder how close the little guy will get to 20 before the break?


He hit his 15th HR, today, in his last game before the ASB. I don't think he could get any closer to 20HR before the break, but still, he isn't human so I would give him a 50/50 chance of breaking 20 before tomorrow.


Excuse me? Why was today his last game before the allstar break? The allstar game is on the 12th. Unless Roberts has some injury I don't know about he has about a week left to reach 20. Very unlikely, but conceiveable.


I own Roberts, and (one of) the first to advocate his success.
I, in a misjudgement, figured the ASB occurred half way in the season. BR hit his 15th last night in the O's 81st game (162/2=81). and erroneously assumed it was his last game before the ASB.
Forgive me for the sarcasm.
Why are there so many haters?
