    Yeah, basehits and doubles are soooo much better than homeruns over a sidewalk curb in RF.

    Again, can't reply to post without removing the wordshort that's not in my post.




    According to baseball reference.com and their calculations, and the sabermetricians so rampantly alluded to on this board, yes. But, due to your pathological fandom, I wouldn't expect you to understand. For starters, why don't you look at the home/road splits of Williams and Yaz? And these are LHers, who were robbed of many a HR due to Fenways one big (and brutal) disadvantage for hitters, LH HRs.

    And here they are...

    Carrer home/ away splits:

    Yaz:

    Home: .306/.402/.503/.904 (237 HRs in 5948 ABs)

    Away: .264/.357/.422/.779 (215 HRs in 6040 ABs)

    Williams: 

    Home: .361/.496/.652/1.148 (248 HRs in 3887 ABs)

    Away: .328/.467/.615/1.082 (273 HRs in 3819 ABs)

    Combined HRs:

    Home: 485 in 9835 ABs

    Away: 488 in 9859 ABs

    Thanks; if I recall correctly, they could park it to the opposite field; ala Lynn and Ortiz; and for doubles, Boggs.

    I wonder how may HR's Williams would have hit if his home park was Yankee Stadium and he didn't lose prime years in the service.

    Too bad "thinking to myself" isn't as far as it goes.

    He would be the HR King. DiMaggio was almost traded for Williams; imagine what their numbers would have been like for both of them.
