I don't get it. He put up great numbers that year, and by all accounts was a great, in-your-face leader. But I guess we will have to agree to disagree. (I will say, though, looking at his numbers, well let's just say there is a very strange and dramatic jump in performance, almost as if he suddenly found some substance that assisted him in hitting baseballs better.)
