  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Ron LeFlore

    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?

    For the first time since Johnny Bates, I'm voting for someone other than Dougherty. LeFlore has a higher OPS, a better batting average, more grey ink, better offensive and defensive WAR, better speed, better extra base hit power and some actual black ink to his name.

      Is the name Bumbry above the challengers stats a cut and paste or other such typo?


      • #4
        Yeah, cut and paste.

          You know what I'm goign with LeFlore too. He was really good with Detroit and, to my younger self, a good backstory.

            Get your votes in...just a couple days left!

              I'm as giddy as a little schoolgirl. It looks like Dougherty's reign of domination may be coming to an end! And with that, we are of course one step closer to the end-goal of this project, which is to work our way up to somebody vs. Babe Ruth.
