Comments on: Large HR/PA % Age 29 And Older http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/8418 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: John http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/8418/comment-page-1#comment-54490 Thu, 30 Sep 2010 13:19:45 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=8418#comment-54490 Yeah, John, I noticed that after I posted it. Mostly, I was just having fun with my first shared P-I report. 😛

Anyways, the point stands: Pena's season (still) a rarity.

It's something that WP does. Have you tried using the pre-formatted [pre] type tables? Those may post better in comments sections.

Maybe it works if I delete some of the extraneous columns? --

Steve -- Yes, I meant, how can I post P-I search results right here in a blog reply?
But perhaps I've figured it out -- let's see if I can post a corrected list of players with BA 100:

John -- Technically, Billy Ashley does not belong in that table, since he hit .200 even -- you said "below the Mendoza Line."

Pena has the chance this season to become the first-ever full-time player with an average below the Mendoza Line and an above-average OPS+. As of right now, he's at .198 and 103, respectively.

Only five previous players have done that with at least 100 at-bats:

Do you mean in a comment/reply to a post?

Speaking of not-so-great predictions, in 1980, my brother and I predicted that fellow Brave Bob Horner would become the all-time HR leader some day.

but as I see the lists in #4 above, maybe the guess wasn't so bad considering the other names on the lists.
