That way, if Helton hit 40 HR and Shawn Green hit 30 next year, Green's would work out to 38 HR and Helton's to 30 HR, based on ballpark factors.
You make some valid points but you are looking way too deep into this stuff. IMHO, ballparks and lineups and stuff like that should only be used at the end and not as a major criteria.
