MCab actually hit much better at home this year than on the road. OPS over 100 points higher, in fact.
I don't really think that means anything. Honestly, you're talking such small sample sizes at a bunch of parks that it's really meaningless. I'd expect a guy to hit better at home than on the road for the most part simply due to the fact that they're more comfortable there because they play half the season in that ballpark. You really don't think if MCab played for, say, Philly and was in that bandbox half a season he'd have more HRs? I certainly do...
I'm with you on the rest of it though. I wouldn't expect 40 HRs by any means.
