Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/01/2005: Interesting speculation


From today's Baseball Prospectus Newsletter:

When somebody like Albert Pujols blows into Denver (as if there are a lot of guys out there like Albert Pujols), donít you find yourself asking how crazy his numbers would look if he played there full time?

I asked Clay Davenport to take Pujolsí numbers from the first four years of his career and adjust them as if he'd played his home games in Coors Field rather than Busch Stadium:

Year	  Actual	Translation
2001 .329/.403/.610 .365/.439/.679
2002 .314/.394/.561 .345/.424/.618
2003 .359/.439/.667 .389/.470/.723
2004 .331/.415/.657 .360/.445/.716

Tot .333/.413/.624 .365/.444/.684


Clay writes:

Pujols has a 1037 OPS in a park that averaged a .972 factor over these four years. The translation moves him to a 1.167 average park over the four years. His PF goes up by 20%, so his OPS should go up by ~10% (because runs go up twice as fast as OPS). Our crude estimate is 1.10*1037 = 1141; the more rigorous DT estimate is 1128. Close enough to not be considered outlandish.
