    Wondering where he would have ended up had he not missed almost 5 full seasons while in the military........1943, 44, 45 and almost all of 1952, 53 during Korea. Sabermetrics has estimated he lost 103 homers, 382 RBI's and 561 hits during WWIi and another 250 hits 40 homers and 225 RBI's during Korea...........that brings him up to 664 homers 5th all time (3rd if you discount Baroid Bonds and ARod), 2466 RBI's which would be #1 all time and 3564 hits which would be 5th trailing only Rose, Cobb, Aaron and Musial.
