Comment: Twenty years ago, 28 homers was quite an accompishment. Now, it's what mixed leagues owners should expect from a first baseman.
I can't resist knowking this. Maybe 40 years ago, 28 HRs was an accomplishment. 20 years ago, the league leaders hit 49 HRs, and there were about 40 guys who hit more than 30.
In 1986 only one player hit 40 HR's, the 7th highest total was just 31 HR's and only 18 players hit 29+. 20 years ago hitting 28 HR's made you a good HR hitter.
That's what I'm saying, Ender. This guy seems to have forgotten that 20 years ago was the HUGE increase in HRs.
