I don't think he could have "saved" the Royals, but his loss to that franchise about the same time George Brett was in serious decline really hurt.

Do you think he would be accused of juicing?

None of them reached 30 in a season until Bill Melton, in 1970; 40 had to wait for Frank Thomas in 1993; 50 is still waiting.

Was it Bill James who noted the "Curse" of Steve Balboni? I think no World Series winner had a player with more than his 36 HR for 15 years or so.

Sheffield holds their record with 42. Even though theRoyals have been around 20 seasons longer than the Marlins, the cutoff will soon be 27 for the Marlins also; assuming Jacobs (25) and Cantu (22) stay on pace.
