Thanks! I enjoy it--I think it's the would-be sports historian in me. As long as somebody wants to read them, I'll keep posting them.

2003 is the year Dunn and Kearns both got off to great starts, IIRC they combined to hit 17 homeruns in April and it looked they would each hit 40. Then Ray King happened. Kearns was on his way to super stardom until King fell on his shoulder. Dunn never did get it going after April and only finished with 27 homers before missing the last month and half of the season due to a thumb injury.

1st of 19 wins for Cactus Jack that season. I've noticed Lopes isn't starting for the Dodgers at 2nd. He must not have come up from the minors until later.

Lopes played 145 games for LA in 1973 but i am not sure if he started the season in LA or Alburquerque, but something I didn't realize was Lopes was 28 years old when he became the Dodger second baseman. Talk about a late bloomer.
