Comments on: Are doubles on the decline for power hitters? http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/389 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: Andy http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/389/comment-page-1#comment-1910 Mon, 29 Oct 2007 12:06:54 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/sotd/archives/389#comment-1910 That comment is without merit, as we're only talking about trends. Ortiz also hit a lot of doubles because he lost his HR power for much of the year due to a knee injury. If anything, that strengthens our point that it seems to be all about HR OR doubles now, but not both so much.

Here is a slightly different list. 2006 and 2007 don't score so highly on this list.
