Mo was Stargell w half the run. He was John Mayberry maybe? Real good hitter, roid suspicions, top 45 1b all time.
Right on cue...
Sabermetrician Adam Darowski just released a saber-friendly version of Similarity Scores yesterday, in fact. Now we have two alternatives to chose from, given your persuasion.
Scroll down .5 of the page for info.
An interesting read, but-Chet Lemon's a Hof, but Puckett, Oliva and Gil Hodges aren't? Suurrre.
I checked out the hall of dWAR with contains Gene Tenace, which automatically makes it bogus. Besides being a scrub, Tenace played a lot of 1B. It also contains Joe Torre, who had big years, including his amazing 1971 MVP, at other positions.
If you are referring to the link above (the Hall of Stats, as the creator calls it), I was only showing a different version of Similarity Scores since the BBref version was brought up and questioned in re: to Mo Vaughn. Not sure what Gene Tennace or Joe Torre has to do with Mo Vaughan or his Similarity Scores.

Still shocked that he won the MVP over Belle, or Martinez.
