  • Give you the Willies

    OK, it's not exactly Mays and McCovey, but which of the current Willies do you prefer? Their stats are very similar, Harris has played for 12 years, Bloomquist for 11. Both are quintessential utility players, who can fill in adequately at multiple positions on the field.

    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

      In Cincinnati, Willie Harris is the new Corey Patterson. Meaning a lot of people are scratching their heads as to why he has a roster spot.

        Bloomquist has played SS, CF and 3B as his "primary" positions while Harris played LF, CF and 2B. Defense - Bloomquist.

        Surprisingly Harris beats him in most offensive categories.

        Harris. By two hairs.

        *Think I picked the wrong Willie in the poll*
        "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

          The Mets signed him last season, primarily because ownership didn't have money for an actual major league player.
          The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

            I voted for Harris, because somebody had to. Before I created this poll, I assumed Bloomquist was the superior Wille, but in researching on BBR, I was struck by how similar their careers and statistics are.

            When Harris was with the White Sox, Hawk Harellson nicknamed him "Peapod", which seemed incredibly racist to me for some reason.

                Willie Harris has made about 4 game winning/saving catches against the Mets over his career (I dont know the exact number, but it's definitely 2-3 atleast).
