Before 1995, about the time the Steroid Era began, there had been two 50-homer season in 25 years. Cincinnati's George Foster hit 52 in 1977 and the Tigers' Cecil Fielder belted 51 in 1990. Between 1995-2002, players hit 50 or more homers 18 times.

The balls have been on roids too.

I'm not throwing out the 'roids notion, but if you look at how the game has progressed, there are other reasons for the increased HR totals. Smaller ballparks, expansion teams that stretch pitching quailty thinner, better bat technology, shrinking strike zones, lower mounds, hitters watching pitcher video tape...there's all sorts of stuff that have favored hitters in recent years. Personally, in the next few years, I think you'll see a moderate decline in homers because I think the pitching is starting to catch up with the hitting. Everyone else will say it's because steroid use has dropped off, but of those 18 times that 50 homers have been hit, think of how many have belonged to one steroid user alone a.k.a. Bonds.

You are freaking awesome for doing this. I don't know how you find them all, but it is very much appreciated. :classic:

Thanks!:classic: I just search for "Detroit Tigers" in the news sections of yahoo and google to get most of it, then check the main sources as well. Welcome to the board.

The one about how even the Tigs are surprised at how well Ordonez is doing made me smile. Sure, may just be so much fuzzy press, but bloody hell that's good to hear anyways.

Wouldn't it just be fantastic if everyone was healthy, everyone performed to or above expectations, and we had a .500 or better year? I think I've lost my mind in the fuzzy good feelings.

It sounds like Cornejo might be quite a bit ahead of where we expected.

Keep in mind that it is his hometown newspaper...

I've been to Lakeland before. Lakeland has bad neighborhoods? :confused:

Once those retirees finish their early bird specials, they're loaded for bear!
