  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Lou Finney

    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?

    Finney had a higher BA, Spct, OPS more H, 2B, 3B, HR and RBI all in roughly the same PA/AB. But of course Dougherty almost matched him playing in the depths of the dead ball era while Finney started his career in the mid 1930s. Finney led the league in AB once, Dougherty in (off the top of my head) R and SB probaly at least once each and maybe H once as well. Not to mock Finney, but his top OPS+ for a full season was 108 which is less than Dougherty's average.
