There is a difference between the two parks, and last year it was a significant gap, especially in HR's. Don't make such a big deal about it.
No, you said the Coliseum was a hitters park and Busch was a pitchers park. You say Busch gives up far fewer HR's than the Coliseum. So what. Busch gives up far more doubles than the Coliseum. That proves very little.
Far more relevant is the fact that there were more runs scored at Busch last season than the Coliseum. Hitters at Busch hit for a far higher average than at the Coliseum and that included pitchers.
Now to say Busch is a pitchers park and the Coliseum a hitters park, and then to use it to support a theory of why Mulder could do better this season, is simply wrong.
