* - it is of course never safe to count Rickey out; watch for him next year.
** - barring injury, Finley should easily join the club in 2005.
*** - if Canseco and Strawberry could have kept their respective heads out of their respective rear ends, they would have easily joined the club.
# - ARod could still conceivably join the club after enjoying a resurgence in SBs in 2004.
## - Gant went 30-30 three times in four years from 1990-1993. Then he missed all of 1994 after shattering his leg in an off-season motorcycle accident,
and was never again the same player; he likely would have easily made the club otherwise.
### - the odyssey of Raul Mondesi continues after a truly bizarre 2004 season; he will only be 34 next year, and could still make the club, but he is a better
candidate for the Canseco/Strawberry "Head in the Rear-End" club.
#### - Sandberg retired midway through the 1994 season, missed all of the 1995 season, and returned to play in 1996 and 1997. It is questionable whether
he would have hit the necessary 18 home runs to join the club in 1995, but he averaged 18.5 over the two years he played after returning.
**** - Eric Davis deserves special mention here for his performance in 1987. Davis went 37-50, coming tantalizingly close to the 40-40 club. Davis, of
course, struggled with injuries throughout his career, and 1987 was no exception as he played only 129 games. His 162 games pace for 1987 put him on
pace for 47 home runs and 63 stolen bases, which would have been by far the greatest power speed season of all time. Furthermore, if injuries plus cancer
would not have cut short his career one can only guess whether he would be a member of the 300/300, 400/400, or even 500/500 clubs.
