2003 stats are up. Interesting notes:
- Paul Konerko's 2003 OPS+: 85 (that's Ozzie Guillen territory, folks).
- Billy Koch's 2003 ERA+: 78.
- Keith Foulke's 2003 ERA+: 205(!).
- Frank Thomas' 2003 OPS+: 149. For five million dollars, that's a hell of a deal. His most similar player is still Jeff Bagwell.

Frank's OPS+ was a little higher than I thought it'd be, with Comiskey's PF beginning to favor hitters, but I guess league averages for OPS have been declining since 2000. I wonder if his career OPS+ is still in the top 10.

Thanks for letting us know that it's finally been updated for 2003. I'm probably going to end up spending the next hour looking around that site. :smile:

Man those two need to go in the Hall of Fame on the same day.
