I remember reading that. Yet, the '05 team seemed to do a much better job of manufacturing runs in close games, something that eluded previous teams. Without looking at the numbers, I wonder how the significant the difference was in the number of home runs hit with men on base, as opposed to the solo variety that was commonplace on earlier teams. The '03 team was particularly guilty of this, as only Frank Thomas and Carlos Lee drove in more than one hundred runs. Magglio Ordonez finished with ninety nine runs batted in.
