Flukes?

Postby wkelly91 » Sat Feb 21, 2004 9:12 am

Esteban Loaiza is considered a fluke by most.

Who are some of the famous flukes in baseball?

Could be:

Huge numbers in the middle of an average career
Ex: Brady Anderson's 50 homeruns
Davey Johnson 43 homeruns etc.

Huge first year, then gone in a couple of years.
Ex:????? :-?

Huge post season, then drift into obscurity. :-?

Why did these players have these years?
Why did they dissapear?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I don't know that either of those would apply to what I'm talking about. Both Charbeneau and Hundley were cut down by injuries. What I'm looking at is players who for one reason or another had a season that makes you say "what happened here" because all his other years are much more differant.

Brady Anderson hits 50 homeruns. No injuries just never comes close before or after. Why?

Davy Johnson hits 43 homeruns with the Braves one year. Never comes close before or after.

Campy Campaneris hits 22 homeruns one year?

Tom Browning wins 20 his rookie year?

Miguel Dilone hits .341 one year?

Norm Cash hits .361? his rookie year?

Is it all luck? Or does something else come into play?
