  • Ron LeFlore vs. Mookie Wilson

    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?

    When I saw a choice was Mookie it was hard not to vote for him (until I looked at the numbers). WAR, presumably in Mooks favor because he had a good reputation defensively and LeFlore did not, gave me the excuse (a check on BBRef has Mook at 0.1 and LeFlore -9.5). That's three 70/80s CF-leadoff basestealers in a row. Is Omar Moreno up next?

          triplicate post - the comupeter or system ifs really screwy. At least to the scanner it'll look active here instead of just one guy impatiently hitting the send button.

            This is a tough one here. But I'll take Ron Leflore for better rates stats.

            Per 162 games, each averaged:

            M Wilson 84 runs, 51 RBI, 38 SB, 11 CS, .274/.314/.386
            LeFlore: 108 runs, 52 RBI, 67 SB, 21 SC, .288/.342/.392

            Mookie had about 600 more plate appearances, which isn't much. Leflore actually had some very good seasons. 5 times, he managed 93+ runs, including a league leading 126 runs and a league leading 68 steals in 1978.

              I went with LeFlore, but it pained me not to vote for Wilson.
