Are Baseballs "Juiced" This Season?

You're welcome.  When your calling card in life is the pride you take in being the smuggest, most self-conceited member of a discussion board dedicated to the second worst team in baseball, you're entitled to your accolades.

Not to be a stickler, but self-conceited is redundant.

I'd just like to say I was born in '72.

I thought you were a guy in his 70s who retired to Florida and who yells at kids to get off you lawn.

At least, unlike the kids you teach, I'm actually the best at something.

Not sure how this thread turned into you dumping on some Little Leaguers, but that's enough, thanks. Let's get back to the topic at hand.

If you scale 1907's home run total (244) to 162 games and 30 teams you get 481. Which the 2019 majors passed in the middle of April.  99% of the 2019 rulebook is the same as it was in 1907.

Boston's Dave Brain led the majors in homers in '07 with 10.  This year 231 major leaguers have 11 or more homers with almost three weeks left on the schedule.  In 1907 86 players qualified for the batting title.  So there are almost three times as many players in 2019 with 11 homers as there were full-time regulars in 1907.

Zach Greinke has more homers this year than Hall of Famers Nap Lajoie, Frank Chance, George Davis, Jake Beckley, Jimmy Collins, Willie Keeler and Bobby Wallace had as regular position players in '07.
