The Ryan Klesko Invitational - 2002

PostMon Apr 16, 2018 2:37 pm

Ryan Klesko is well deserving of a card in the ATG set after a 16 year career with some good pop. As we've started to debate he has some worthy years for consideration...so we are going to have a little 48 hour poll to see which one of Klesko's years gets into the 18.2 vote. Who knows this might start a trend...as we all know its what the people want not the special interests right?!

I reference the 99 card in comparison as its the one that everyone has access to.

So I'm including 4 of Klesko's years for your consideration.
1995 BRV LF 4(+2)13/1B 4e30 - 310/396/608/1004 - 5R
In looking at the card viewer, similar splits against righties with more pure HR than 99 (8 vs 5.5) + 5 more BPHR and is sub 40% vs lefties with some pop

1999 BRV 1B 4e17/LF 3(+2)2 - 297/376/532/908 - 9R

2001 SDP 1B 4e13 - 286/384/539/923 - 4R
Card viewer shows slightly more pop than 99 vs righties and about 33% vs lefties with very little pop

2002 SDP 1B 3e10/RF 4(+1)9 - 300/388/537/925 - 1R
Card viewer shows most even card. Vs righties almost identical to 99 with a BPHR bonus of +5 and 40% OBP vs lefties with 4 pure HR's AND a total of 7.55 BPHR of which 5 are the bonus not showing up in the red type.

Please feel free to add to the string. Voting will close at Noon on Wednesday, at which time I will post the 18.2 polls.

I believe the 95 card will net the most HR's

With 281 Plate Appearances in 1995, where is his injury roll?

The '95 card is strictly a DH card, while the more balanced and more usable 2002 card can actually play the field as a 3e10 at 1B.

I'd much rather see Klesko added as an Atlanta Brave. He was part of the '95 World Championship team.

Vote 1995!!
