Thread: Patsy Dougherty vs. Whitey Whitt

    Patsy Dougherty vs. Whitey Whitt

    We're playing the "who is better than his most similar comp" game.

    My starting point was Tommy Dowd, the guy with the lowest WAR among all batters with at least 5,000 plate appearances. I hope to work my way up to *somebody* vs. Babe Ruth. That'd be cool.

    Which of these players would you like to build your franchise around?

    Dougherty:

    1233 G
    5109 PA
    4558 AB
    678 R
    1294 H
    138 2B
    78 3B
    17 HR
    413 RBI
    261 SB
    378 BB
    458 K
    .284 BA
    .346 OBP
    .360 SLG
    .705 OPS
    117 OPS+
    1639 TB
    54 HBP
    119 SH

    Whitt:

    4171 AB
    632 R
    1195 H
    144 2B
    62 3B
    18 HR
    302 RBI
    78 SB
    >= 41 CS
    489 BB
    309 K
    .287 BA
    .362 OBP
    .364 SLG
    .726 OPS
    97 OPS+
    1517 TB
    7 HBP
    104 SH
    8.8 WAR

    If Dougherty wins, he will face his most similar comp's sixth-most similar comp. If Whitt wins, he will face his second-most similar comp.

    Isn't it Witt? If I'm not mistaken Witt was an early SS-CF or vice versa conversion.

    One may end this exciting project, seeing as how I don't get very many votes anymore.
