Does "The Jake" scare you?

Thw White Sox, Twins and Indians had very good pitching last year that has to be a factor. Though the left field wall does knock down some HRs. When Thome, Manny, Belle and Sexson hit HRs it does not matter what park they played in those guys hit some bombs. Martinez, Sizemore, Peralta and Hafner of those guys only Hafner crushes HRs as did the 4 I cited. So it makes sense to me that the Jake would rob say Sizemore of some HRs, moreso a righty like Peralta.

Don't leave out albert belle man he is the best indian ever.
