Reality Check time..
Lets try ...
What TheYanks04 forgot to tell you when he wrote:
That some of these guys were popping 40-50+ Hrs a year with regularity prior to all this is just a coincidence.
Your High .. drunk .. something ..
Career high 26 HR. He just happend to have a career high in AB's that year, coincedence ?
The Smurf on roids (Bret Boone) go from 40 Hr stud 2b to so bad he had to retire.
.. Career High 37 HR's, also a career high in AB's he hit 35 one other time, his second highest AB total
.. Career High 39 .. He averaged in the mid 30's for 4 to 5 years. Are we to suspect everybody that hit 30HR's now? You are nuts ...
His brother Marcus is not fairing all too well either
.. career high 21 HR's ..
Helton loses his power in his early 30's...
A) He hit 49, one time. B) He has a bad back, and (C) if you think the fact that Colorado has one of the best ERA's in the NL, is just some out of the blue, bizarre coincedence, then I want some of what you are smoking ... If you think BYK is "good" all of the sudden, I'll buy some of that smoke off ya. You have had enough.
Just wait till Colorado gets some pitching. That outfield is massive ....
Still ... I think you need better examples ..
I have two in mind ..
And personally, I think as admitted users they should be banned from post season competition all together. I wonder if it is to late to start a petition or something.
anybody have George Mitchells email address?
