    • Manny's numbers comp to Adrian Beltre's to this point in their careers.  I don't think anyone pegged Beltre to be a HoF player through his age 26 season.  He hadn't made an All Star game but was a runner up for MVP one season.   (and to pat myself on the back, Adrian Beltre is Manny's #1 comp, I did this research before I looked). So Manny has some work to do...he'll have to play awhile, get some more GGs, become known as a generational defender and put up some big round counting numbers.  And become beloved.  Adrian Beltre became a beloved player in his later years.  Manny, most people think of him as a villain of sorts.  If he does all that, he can be a HoFer.
    • Yea, Earl Webb is still safe. That record hasn't been seriously approached very often.  Every once in a while someone will put up over 30 in half a season, but invariably they fall way off the pace.  Nobody has hit 60 doubles in a season since the 30s.  Helton came close in 2000.  And (bizarrely, I didn't know about this) Nicholas Castellanos had 58 laste year, the only person in the top 75 who switched teams in mid-season. The highest doubles rates for years are 1930, 2007, 2006, 2008, 1932, and 2004.  They've been off a bit the last 10 years but are still in the top ~25 seasons of all time.  But still, nobody's seriously challenged Webb, who was a minor league star in the independent high minors of the 1920s and didn't have a full MLB season until he was almost 30. The professional record is 100, by Lyman Lamb of Tulsa in the Western League in 1924.  I believe that's the record by 25 doubles, no one else in any league ever hit more than 75 doubles in a season.  The preceding two years Lamb hit 68 and 71.  In 54 MLB games he doubled 11 times.
    • Less chance of sub-zero temperature.
    • I will be shocked if we don’t have a season. Would really hurt the sport.  I figured all along that deferred money would come up. I wasn’t surprised there was a big gap at first. I knew MLB’s first offer the union would spit at. 
    • I thought Vada had fallen victim to Heorin or Coke habit? (Maybe because of the back) I dont think Manny has had too many on the field problems, but not sure, how many more his career can take, without impacting the writers opinion of him and HOF worthlessness.
