Default Fun With Numbers:

Khris Davis led MLB with 48 home runs this year - the third straight year he hit at least 40.

He also hit .247- for the FOURTH consecutive season!

Vinny Castilla had the same Triple Crown Totals in consecutive seasons:
1996-97 40 HR, 113 RBI, .304

Fred Lynn hit exactly 23 HRs FOUR consecutive seasons (1984-87)

Hank Aaron, who wore #44 almost his entire career, hit exactly 44 HRs FOUR different times:

1957, 1963 (when Willie McCovey, who also wore #44 and was also born in Mobile, AL, tied him), 1966, & 1969 (when McCovey edged him by one.)

Warren Spahn, who wore #21 his entire career, won exactly 21 Games an amazing EIGHT times!

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

The same BA for four years is remarkable.
Stuff trumps all. Even tainted stuff.

Joey Gallo has had more HR than singles the last two years. He is only the second player (McGwire the other) to have more than 502 PA (qualifying season) and have more HR than single in multiple seasons.

2017: 41HR | 32 Singles
2018: 40HR | 38 Singles

McGwire hit more HR than singles 4 times. This includes his 2001 season where he hit more HR than all other hits combined (29 HR | 27 Non HR hits).

Bonds hit only 49 singles in 2001 when he hit 73 HR.
