Teams do "carry" the player, but what are teams made up of? (Point. If Reggie Jackson "carried" his teams to more championships than could the Babe, Gehrig, Williams, Foxx, Bonds, etc., are we to conclude that he was a greater player, for having been able to do that?! And if we don't conclude that, what are we to conclude from that argument? So you tell me! Why was Reggie Jackson able to carry his teams to many more than any other player in history? How was Reggie able to pull that off? Since you rule out that his team didn't "carry (assist)" him?
Answer us that, if you can.)
That's not what I said at all. I said you can't completely discount a player's contribution to a team.
Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.
