Well, Sammy should enjoy the milestone because its the last one he'll ever reach. Perhaps the adrenaline of breaking a record will help him out for a few days, as it did Palmeiro, but that's it. To say that Sammy has been a disappointment is an understatement. Jeered out of Chicago, many "experts" thought the friendly confines of Camden would do him good. However, Baltimore has been no kinder to Sammy:
Didn't think about the fact that Wrigley isn't a bad place to hit at either he's booed at the plate when he hits in Baltimore, and the cork must be harder to come by.
Whatever the reason for his failures, you can't dispute the numbers, his ops has been sliding, his strikeouts rising, and his power dwindling. An baseball icon just a few short years ago, sadly Sammy's fall from grace is far from being over. He'll hit 10 more homeruns,in the wind-aided confines of Camden, but that's it.
