is this guy screaming at me? . Interesting ...
as was pointed out to you already .. yes, Thome did struggle coming over ..
Since runs and rbis are a team dependent stat, and obvioussly Philly was a little better than Cleveland in this regard in '03. Now Thome has always been a 2nd half player, but if it wasn't for those 20 homers he hit during the last 7 weeks of the season it would have been a huge dissapointment.
I guess there is no need to point out his .266 BA vs the .300 and .291 he posted the two years before.
Oh thats right.... most of the people here don't really pay attn to BA. It not an important stat
so sorry ... you were right. Thome fit into the NL just perfectly...
Yeah I agree this is all becoming a bit tedious but I am too a man of principal.
Once again just for you and Hootie.
His career slugging, avg, OPS and OBP are better before the All Star break than after. Of course there are more games before the break but what have these categories got to do with games played?
Also his best career monthly numbers overall have been posted in June. Funny I always thought that month was in the first half of the season.
