All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

Note: Dinger Whiff Numbers will updated less frequently in the initial post going forward. And believe when I say that lyrical bumps are still appreciated, Joe Tex lyrics not withstanding.

To satisfy the overwhelming demand for a confusing rule that could be broken, please note that Rule #4 has been added, since Yankee fans have not been overly enthusiastic about participating.

The sweepstakes rule #4 should be difficult to win, so the prize will be commensurate with the difficulty.

Note as well, that in the modern game, any positive dinger whiff number is an achievement. Whether there will ever be additional players added to the Dinger Whiff Hall of Fame is debatable.

What's the single season record? Is it DiMaggio in 1937 with 147?

Would have entered but saw the thread a few days after others did. Didn't want to be a rude cheatin' SOB, so was Just messing from afar.

So, does Rule #4 mean I can still join and that my odds of winning will be commensurate with my late date? (Hi Marilyn Monroe).

p.s. Don't be a Yankee hater

If you consider pitchers with basically the same rules with the signs reversed, the Dinger Whiff Number becomes a zero sum game. Pitchers would get +1 for a K and -4 for homerun allowed or a gopher ball.

By checking a couple pitchers, Walter and Randy (not your average Johnsons), we find that both dead ball Walter and modern Randy both had career Dinger Whiff Numbers over 3000. No batter has reached 2000.

Makes sense as there are many pitchers who strike out a lot of hitters that don’t hit many home runs. Therefore pitching criteria for the Dinger Whiff Hall of Fame have not been determined. If one wanted to find the tenth best pitcher in Dinger whiffs, his number would be comparable to 1000 for the batters considered Hall of Famers. I’m sure ‘stache could determine the tenth best pitcher faster than I, so I will wait for him to wake up.

And Paul, except for the deadlines in Rule #4, you can enter to your heart’s content. Sanchez and Gregorius may well be better choices than Judge and Stanton when all is said and done.

I will enter my predictions in due time but for now I predict both judge and Stanton will make the Hall of Fame...With the Prerequisite that each please 15 seasons. Problem is Frank you have to live long enough to see this happen!
