The Analyst also answers questions you may not know you had. Will anyone break Pete Rose's career record of 4,256 hits? (Yes, quite possibly Robin Yount.) How have players with the same surnames as U.S. presidents performed during their namesakes' terms? ( Gary Carter's numbers leaped under the Carter Administration; the Twins' Randy Bush has shown a modest improvement since the last election.) Which players' career stats closely match up in every category? ("Cecil Espy is to the '90s what Albie Pearson was to the '60s," says The Analyst.)
Of course, you may be wondering what that makes Cecil Espy. Or, for that matter, why anyone would need to know which major league Aries has hit more homers than any other Aries. If you have to know, it's Gil Hodges.
