Here's a look at the numbers:

Yankees home record (1920-2004):

LOL What nation have YOU been living in?!

Guilt is a good thing here; an EXPECTED thing. Without guilt there can be no book/movie deal!

Thanks Lee.

Look at the difference in unearned runs between the two: Santana has apparently benefited from a much better defense than Unit. Then there's the big gap in FIP.
