  • Who had the better season: Dick McAuliffe in '68 or Lou Whitaker in '84?

    Who had the better season at 2nd base for the Tigers: Dick McAuliffe in 1968 or Lou Whitaker in 1984?

    '68 McAuliffe: 95 runs scored, 142 hits, 10 triples, 16 home runs, 56 RBIs, .249 batting average, .344 OBP, .411 SLG, .755 OPS, WAR 5.6 and finished seventh in MVP balloting.

    '84 Whitaker: 90 runs scored, 161 hits, 13 home runs, 56 RBIs, .289 batting average, .357 OBP, .407 SLG, .764 OPS, WAR 4.3 named and All-Star and won a Gold Glove.

    Who do you give the edge to on having the better season: Dick McAuliffe in 1968 or Lou Whitaker in 1984?

    I'd give the edge to McAuliffe who had similar OBP and SPCT in a historically low offensive season

      Toughie, but I'll have to go with Sweet Lou based strictly on stats. Both were offensive sparkplugs at the top of the order, but Mac was arguably more valuable to the team as evidenced by the Tigers longest losing streak of the season when he was suspended for charging Tommy John on the mound.
