    Anyone know where to find the totals for say the last 10 years as comparison.

    I am researching a story and info does not seem readily available on MLB.com

    It divides it up by NL and AL but you could easily add it together for each season.

    Thanks - perfect - went back through 2000 and combined NL and AL totals
    2000 5693 HR's
    2004 5451 HR's
    2005 5017 HR's
    2006 5386 HR's
    2007 4957 HR's
    2008 4876 HR's

    Difference of 847 dingers from 2000. That seems fairly significant.
  4. We were talking about this yesterday at a family party.

    Heading into yesterday, Carlos Quentin, who hadn't played in a month, was tied for the American League lead with 36 home runs. Though Miguel Cabrera eventually passed him with No. 37, unless he hits three of them today, no one in the American League will finish with 40 home runs for the first time since 1989.

    Hey Waylon - your new found expertise in spread sheets could really do a bang up job on this analysis .

    Glad to see that they stopped winding the balls so tightly.
  7. I reserve that skill for kicking your tail in the NIAFL.

    Hell, the real difference is between 2006 and now.

    The annual stat I want to see is Collective Length of Time Spent on the DL, Before and After Testing for PEDs, for all players but especially pitchers.
