Barry Bonds

No, I'm not here to say we, or anybody, should sign him.  Every so often when I'm on Baseball Reference, I end up on Bonds' page to make a comparison. 

Today, for the first time, I used the "neutralize stats" stats tool that allows you to normalize all stats to a specific environment.  The high end option is the 2000 Rockies.

Bonds' numbers, legit or not, are always mind-blowing and today they were even more so.  Converting his numbers to that 2000 Rockies standard of a 162 game season, with an average team scoring 6.25 runs per game, Bonds projects to hit 100 home runs. (To say nothing of his also hitting .400 and driving in 196 runs) 

100 home runs!  That that is even projectable, by any player placed into any environment, absolutely blows my mind.  For comparison's sake, Babe Ruth tops off at 75, Maris 77, Sosa 81, and McGwire 90.
