No real hate just hate comparisons that dont really fit.  Ted is one of the greatest hitters of all time.  Raul is a solid player.

That's the whole point - that Raul Ibanez was able to do the same thing as Ted Williams in his 41st year, which is a feat unto itself.

Nobody's saying Raul could carry Ted's jockstrap or anything.

exactly and raul has 5 games to hit 1 more and stand ahead of  everyone all-time at that age .  ted was going to quit playing a year or two before he actually did but a friend talked him out of it telling him  that he's so close to some milestones like 500 homers etc. ted played on and actually hit a long homer his last at bat.

With the advances in training, nutrition, off season workouts, etc... comparing ages now isnt anything special imo.

The only way to do it is to look at the deviation from the mean at the current period.  Comparing numbers at face value without context is worthless.  So we pretty much agree.

But, with respect to Ibanez, there's no other 41 year olds doing this, so it's special.   Factor in he's facing better comp, even moreso.

pedro alvarez of the pirates set a new MLB  record for getting an RBI in each of his first six games in the postseason was never done before. too bad  pirates didn't make it to the next round now he has to wait till the pirates reach the postseason again to try and  extend it.

yup, knew it and for his trouble he got sent packing because casey stengel didn't like his act. i think he was on the mets at the time. remember him telling duke snider you hit your 400 hr and they didn't make a big deal out of it. watch when i hit my 100 th.

dyk that if babe ruth would have had  as many at bats as maris in the 61 homer  season when he hit 60 , he would have hit 66 hitting them at his pace.the plate appearances were actually close maris 698 to ruth's691 but ruth of course had more walks.bonds in his 73 year would have hit 91.

a big deal was made in 1961 when roger maris hit 61 hrs and broke babe ruth's hr record of 60 because the season was expanded from 154 games in ruth's time to the then and current 162 games. did you know that when babe originally broke the hr record back in 1919 when he hit 29, the guy's who record he broke was 27 accomplished in a 112 games season at the time.ned williamson  27 hrs in 112 game season back in 1884.

that the mlb all-star game was first held in 1933, and since then 23 pitchers won 15 games or more by the all-star break. ubaldo jimenez was the last to do it in 2010 and was the only one of the 23 not to win 20 games for the year he finished 19-8. 3 pitchers did it more than once wilbur wood 3 times and sandy koufax and bob feller twice. in 1968 denny mcclain was 16-2 at the break he was the only one of the 23 to win 30 games finishing 31-6. wilbur wood won the most he won 18 but he also lost 14 at the break. he finished 24-20 being the only guy to lose 20 .

 DYK the lowest total for a team home run leader is steve balboni who hit 36 home runs in 1985 the total still stands. the record before balboni was 34 by john mayberry sr in 1975.

Didn't Greg Nettles win the HR crown with 32 once?

Maybe I'm reading your post incorrectly?

yup nettles led the al with 32 hrs in 1976 , but what i meaning is the all-time team leaders for example the all time yankee single season hr leader would be roger maris with his 61 he beat out babe ruth 60 for the all time team lead. next on the list would be ruth's 59 hr and there on down. phillies leader ryan howard with 58....... giants bonds 73 orioles davis 53 anderson 50 frank robinson 49......

DYK with the 76ers recent streak of 26 losses  the philly sports teams now own or share the record for consecutive losses in two of the four major sports. the nba record is now jointly held by the cleveland cavs 2010-11 and the sixers 2014. the phillies hold the modern major league record of 23 losses in 1961. the orioles of 1988 hold the al record with 21 losses. the nfl record of 26  is held by the tampa bay buccaneers of 1976-77 fame. the  nhl record is a paltry 17 by the caps of 74-75 and the sharks in 92-93.

dyk that raul ibanez tied ted williams for homeruns hit during his 41  year on earth . raul tied ted with 29 with a few more games to play.
