Is the MLB Home Run losing significance?
I counted 59 home runs hit last night...... that's one full schedule of Friday night games minus the Yankee/Royal rainout... 14 games..... 4.21 homers per game....3 different guys had multiple homer games. And its every single night. Like the 3 point shot in hoops the home run is the lightening rod for MLB and its becoming less significant. I see a Klay Thompson 3 point shot go in and I yawn ... just look at the home run leader list ....If you have 10 home runs or more today...that extrapolates to 31 homers for the season. 59 different players in MLB have 10 or more homers and they are all on target for 30 plus homers and more. 35 players have 12 homers or more and are on target to hit 38-40 homers...... 35 different players......back in the day you might see 5 guys with 35 or more HR's and maybe 2 or three with 40 plus...... the game~ it is a changin'. IT may not mean much today ...but in 10-20 years we may be seeing career numbers we haven't seen before.
