Neat tool.

What happens when you super-impose Pujols’ batted balls into the Juicebox? 9 extra homers, that’s what. That would be a total of 56 homers for last season, if Albert were an Astro. (Yeah, that made me twinge).

Of course the problem with this is these graphics is they show where the ball was fielded, not where the ball landed, so take this with a grain of salt. I do think if Albert played half his games at Minute Maid, he would probably be hitting 50 per year.

Fun toy.

Erik became addicted to Cardinals baseball as a young lad growing up on the mean streets of O'Fallon, MO. He moved away to Tulsa to attend Bible College, where he met his wife, who talked him into moving to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, also known as the Bermuda triangle of baseball. His dream is to see the blackouts end, and his other interests are theology and philosophy of religion. He is the parent of two young boys.

  1. the thought of Albert as an Astro made me throw up in my mouth a little bit…

  2. I bet you could combine that, a table of the outfield wall heights, and the trajectory data from and come up with a truly useful tool.
