@RataTatTom I worded that really poorly. I was referencing the conversation from effectively wild the other day, in which they discuss players with ONLY 1 plate appearance. Of the players with just one plate appearance in their career, none of them hit homeruns. Of the players with just two PAs in their career, none it homeruns. 


But of all the players who had just 3 PAs in their career, one guy named Luke Stewart hit a homerun. That's what I was trying to convey.

So there was a player who in 1921 hit a homer on his first PA. He then went 0-2 on his next two PAs, and that was the end of his career. There are no players with 1 or 2 PAs who hit homeruns. 


This was all from effectively wild the other day. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=25406

@Mike Petriello @PagansOedipalComplex @DBrim Fun fact on that, by the way, the fewest PAs needed to hit a homer in the majors was 3.

@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @Mike Petriello From that article:


4. Jonathan Gray, Rockies: Gray might have the best pure stuff in the Minors, which is why some scouts considered him the best prospect in the 2013 Draft. He drew comparisons with Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole before going No. 3 overall and signing for $4.8 million. Gray's fastball combines outstanding velocity (topping 100 mph) and heavy life, and his slider can be just as devastating.

@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @Mike Petriello I'm only going from the context, like you, so I can't say for sure. But a quick google search reveals that that phrase does exist elsewhere.

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe)  Most people are going to be confused by 20-80 ratings. They will wonder why you gave your own son a B-minus in cuteness or whatever.

@DKD ...Kemp is 30 with a troubling series of serious leg injuries, poor defensive skills, and a large, long-term contract. Puig comes out far better in all of those comparisons. What's your point?

@jWerthfan @mawp @Mike Petriello @Catfishin At the end of the day, this is entertainment. In many ways it's like a call-in radio show. If you don't want to be made fun of, don't call in. If you do call in, make sure you present yourself well.


Even if Chuck is terribly hurt and never comes back, the fact that Mike published his awful, awful question gave me and the rest of the readers a good laugh. So that was probably a good decision on his part. 


Jim Rome got massively successful for a reason.
