  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Luis Polonia

    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?

    Dougherty:

    1233 G
    5109 PA
    4558 AB
    678 R
    1294 H
    138 2B
    78 3B
    17 HR
    413 RBI
    261 SB
    378 BB
    458 K
    .284 BA
    .346 OBP
    .360 SLG
    .705 OPS
    117 OPS+
    1639 TB
    54 HBP
    119 SH
    15.5 WAR

    Polonia:

    1379 G
    5296 PA
    4840 AB
    728 R
    1417 H
    189 2B
    70 3B
    36 HR
    405 RBI
    321 SB
    145 CS
    369 BB
    543 K
    .293 BA
    .342 OBP
    .383 SLG
    .726 OPS
    97 OPS+
    1854 TB
    15 HBP
    37 SH
    35 SF
    6.4 WAR

      This one is Dougherty too. We're working our way to Babe Ruth, slowly but surely!

        I'm happy whenever anyone votes. I wasn't being critical, just pointing out a pattern.

          I had to go with Dougherty even though I never saw him play. I'm not that old yet. But I do know that Polonia was serviceable as a platoon partner but couldn't make it as an every day player. Dougherty seemed to handle playing every day much better.
