  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Hi Myers

    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?

    aw geez, Cowtipper you promised the competition was going to get tougher. Hi Myers the teens to early 20s Dodger OF? Is there an interesting Jewish backstory perhaps. Though looking him up I see he led the league in 3B 2x, including his banner year of 1919 when he also led the NL in RBI (w/73 !?!, Spct .436 again !?!! and TB 223) with an OPS+ of 130 followed up in 1920 with a 127 OPS+. Alas otherwise he topped 95 1x in his other 6 full seasons. Dougherty, lest we forget, was an early (19)00s OF, and presumably leadoff hitter who led the league in PA, AB, R and H in 1903, AB and R in 1904 and SB in 1907. By point of comparison with Myers, his OPS+ dipped below 98 only once in his entire career and peaked at 141. My choice, while I would like variety, is Dougherty by a mile.

      There will be some good competition coming up in due time. But I agree, for now I'm going with Dougherty as well.
