I was skimming through the last 30 years of stats and then got bored, so, I figured I'd ask if anyone else out there knows:
Has there been a year where the top 3 homerun guys are all from the same team?
The answer is yes, but with an *.
While they did lead the league, times were a different back then and I really don't put much credence into this when the top guy hits 42 more homeruns than the 3rd guy. Maybe I should rephrase the question to modern days.
A few teams come to mind like the 20s Yanks or the Big Red Machine or the late 90s Colorado teams. It seems that just in my skimming, the closest was a team that didn't even have one guy lead the league.
The 1973 Atlanta Braves had the #2, #3 and #4 guy in homeruns.
That was pretty close too.
The 1997 Rockies were close too...
Anyway, I bring this up because the Phils have an outside chance (it's always outside with this stuff and how Pat only plays 2/3rd of the games) to do it and not just in the league (as the Yankees did) but in all of MLB.
Get your punk ass out of there Dunn. Ok, there are 2 guys at 24 and while I suspect Howard will keep up the pace, I am not so sure about Pat and Chase. That is quite a lot of power coming from the middle of our order.
