  • Dixie Walker vs Carlos Delgado

    I'm going to run a series of polls with the winner advancing each time to face another opponent. Will leave each poll up for a week. I'll try to provide as much statistical information as possible. Hopefully we can get some lively insightful debates going and bring to light some overlooked players from yesteryear.
    If you could pick between these two players to start your franchise with which would you pick? Please consider all relavent information. Their careers as a whole, peak performance, hitting, fielding, baserunning, positional value, league quality, etc.

    Delgado, although Walker wasn't at all a bad player.

      Dixie was kinda Manush, solid but not in DelGotits' league.

        I was shocked to see they have about the same amount of WAR. Any ideas as to why WAR underrates Delgado so much? A 138 OPS+ for over 2000 games is really good...seems like he should be higher than a guy like Jim Rice.

          I have Delgado ahead by a decent margin. Walker his for a decent average, but didn't bring much else to the table. Delgado was a very good power hitter that hit for a decent average. Granted, Delgado's defense was atrocius, which prevents Walker from getting blown out here.

            That caught my eye to. According to baseball-reference Walker has 0.1 more WAR in 130 less career games.
