It's only been half of a season. Too short to detect a trend. It may very well be, but you can't say that at this point.

Well, not to blow up my premise -- though I am ...

Very basic stat crunching suggests homers are up and doubles are relatively even to last year.

2006 Season Total:
18.50 at bats / double
31.07 at bats / homer

2007 Mid-Season Total:
18.41 at bats / double
34.91 at bats / homer

Of course, this is very simplistic numbers to draw major conclusions from but it would appear the reduction in homers and increase in doubles is specific to my fantasy team only! :-)

those numbers support your theory, though it's maybe not as pronounced as you thought. more at bats/homer = less homers.

I blame Manbearpig, Manbearpig is clearly the cause of this statistical anomaly, why in fact just yesterday I saw Manbearpig transform into the likeness of Curtis Granderson and steal a HR away from the Red Sox. I'm cereal guys, it's that damn Manbeapig, why won't anyone believe me?
