Interesting. HR predictions for Sexson in Dodger Stadium would have been all over the map.

And out of curiosity, just what are those numbers?

year run support per 9 rank in bb

00 7.61 r/9 2nd
01 6.46 r/9 6th

02 n/a only top 85 listed, so Andy was unlucky this year

03 7.04 r/9 2nd

Consider there are about 150 sp. What are the odds, that in 4 consecutive years, 1 sp out of 150, would place in top 6 3 times? Odds on placing 2nd, 2 out of 4 years? Only 2 other guys made the top 10 twice, David Wells and Aaron Sele, and neither placed top 2 twice.
