Nomination Ideas--INFIELDERS IMPROVEMENTS

PostMon Jun 01, 2020 12:47 am

I've spent a good bit of time looking at card options, both players with No Card and improvements for current players (I usually consider improvements either true improvement on a player who is poorly represented, or a player's card that is different from the way the player is currently represented in the set.)
The stats are run through Diamonddope in Veterans 1975 (10,10,10,10).

I'm still working on Pitchers, mainly waiting to finish info on whether SPs get the * or not.

MIDDLE INFIELDERS

1899 Jimmy Williams PIT Bats-R BAL-E 3b-2e65 INJ Risk-In Game
LH--2b- 4.1 3b-8.1 HR-1.4 BB-11 .413/.483/.670 OPS-1.153
RH--2b- 6.3 3b-4.7 HR-3.1 BB-11 .423/.492/.684 OPS-1.176
1906 Current Williams, Jimmy Bats-R BAL-E 2b-2e15
LH--2b- 5.8 3b-1.5 HR-0.2 BB-10 .304/.375/.401 OPS-.776
RH--2b- 5.65 3b-1.35 HR-0.2 BB-10 .298/.370/.391 OPS-.761
Led League in triples, much better offense. Maybe Strat will mitigate his errors……………..


1910 Nap Lajoie CLE Bats-R BAL-E 2b-1e28, 1b-3e30, SS-3e62 INJ Risk-3
LH--2b- 12.4 3b-0.9 HR-1.1 BB-11 .554/.603/.736 OPS-1.339
RH--2b- 12.0 3b-0.8 HR-1.1 BB-11 .540/.591/.716 OPS-1.306
1901 Current Lajoie, Nap Bats-R BAL-1L 2b-1e17 / ss-3e40
LH--2b- 13 3b-3.4 HR-4.25 BB-1 .570/.578/.877 OPS-1.455
RH--2b- 12.4 3b-3.3 HR-4.25 BB-1 .547/.555/.846 OPS-1.401
1910 was the season that Lajoie won the batting title (and the prize of a Chalmers Model 30 automobile) over Ty Cobb, and many people thought at the time that the Browns “helped” Lajoie win the title because nobody liked Cobb.
This card would have Lajoie’s best OBP of any of his cards……………..


1912 Johnny Evers CHC Bats-L BAL-E 2b-1e34 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 4.2 3b-2.5 HR-0.0 BB-19 .435/.540/.540 OPS-1.080
RH--2b- 4.3 3b-2.7 HR-0.0 BB-19 .451/.552/.560 OPS-1.113

LH--2b- 4.15 3b-1.2 HR-0 BB-21 .338/.473/.415 OPS-.888
RH--2b- 4.95 3b-1.4 HR-0 BB-21 .410/.530/.500 OPS-1.030
Even better Evers card, better hitting and OBP

LH--2b- 0.0 3b-1.8 HR-2.4 BB-20 .337/.466/.460 OPS-.926

RH--2b- 10.5 3b-0.0 HR-3.0 BB-15 .349/.444/.561 OPS-1.006
1928 Current McManus, Marty Bats-R BAL-E 3b-3e24 1b-4e14 ss-3e32
LH--2b- 8.4 3b-0.45 HR-2.2 BB-10 .316/.386/.480 OPS-.866
RH--2b- 8.2 3b-0.45 HR-2.2 BB-10 .308/.378/.470 OPS-.848
1924 plays 2b for Browns and is a better card.
1930 is much better offensively as well.

LH--2b- 0.0 3b-0.0 HR-1.4 BB-5 .264/.298/.305 OPS-.603

RH--2b- 7.15 3b-2.6 HR-5.2 BB-0 .317/.324/.579 OPS-.903
Hickman led the League in Hits and Total Bases in 1902. Would be a fine Improvement over his current card.



1904 Harry Davis PHA Bats-R BAL-E 1b-2e28 INJ Risk-15 (3)
LH--2b- 6.1 3b-3.8 HR-4.5 BB-5 .368/.403/.636 OPS-1.040
RH--2b- 6.1 3b-3.8 HR-4.5 BB-5 .362/.397/.628 OPS-1.026

RH--2b- 6.7 3b-2.25 HR-2.6 BB-2 .324/.343/.505 OPS-.848
Led the League in HR 4 times, including this 1904 card. Would be his best.


1909 Jake Stahl BOS Bats-R BAL-E 1b-3e24 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 4.9 3b-4.3 HR-1.1 BB-11 .362/.433/.536 OPS-.969
RH--2b- 4.8 3b-1.0 HR-1.0 BB-11 .352/.424/.516 OPS-.939
1903 Current Stahl, Jake Bats-R BAL-2L c-4(+5)e7,T-15(pb-6) lf-4(-3)e7 rf-4e7 cf-4e7

RH--2b- 2 3b-8 HR-1.5 BB-2 .190/.213/.405 OPS-.618
Would be an improvement for the Red Sox 1b and player-manager.





1912 Fred Merkle NYG Bats-R BAL-E 1b-1e30 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 4.4 3b-0.8 HR-3.3 BB-8 .367/.419/.525 OPS-.945

RH--2b- 4.3 3b-2.4 HR-4.5 BB-4 .320/.357.541 OPS-.898
More than a “bonehead” (play wasn’t really his fault), Merkle had an even better season in 1912 than our current one.





1913 Chick Gandil WAS Bats-R BAL-E 1b-1e16 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 5.0 3b-1.2 HR-0.0 BB-3 .394/.416/.465 OPS-.881

RH--2b- 6.2 3b-1.75 HR-0 BB-0 .320/.326/.411 OPS-.737
Slick-fielding, Black Sox gambling leader, he’s better in 1913. (Except for the gambling)


1918 Wally Pipp NYY Bats-L BAL-2R 1b-2e24 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 3.8 3b-3.2 HR-0.2 BB-3 .307/.332/.410 OPS-.742

RH--2b- 4.15 3b-2.4 HR-1.1 BB-5 .320/.358/.440 OPS-.798
Was Yankees 1b from 1915 until his “headache” in 1925. This card would give db NYY a decant 1b.




1931 Charlie Grimm CHC Bats-L BAL-1R 1b-1e10 INJ Risk-15
LH--2b- 5.8 3b-2.6 HR-0.4 BB-11 .370/.440/.496 OPS-.936

RH--2b- 6.1 3b-0 HR-2.35 BB-8 .318/.375/.451 OPS-.826
Batted .345 in 1923, .331 in 1931. Both are much better than his current card. Better representation needed for a 14 year starter in the NL at 1b.


1924 Joe Dugan NYY Bats-R BAL-1L 3b-2e18, 2b-4e71 INJ Risk-3

1997 would be fun vs RHP, which would be different for Bagwell.
1999 he led League in Runs and Walks.

2001 Pujols can also play 3b and corner OF, Rookie of the Year, 4th in MVP.
2004 led League in Runs and Total Bases, 3rd in MVP, awesome form both sides, especially vs LHP, though similar to ’08.
2006 led League in SLG and OPS, 2nd in MVP. These are the BEST Pujols power numbers vs RHP……

This Helton is strong vs LHP, which is different than his current cards.

Another card for Big Papi, his swan song in 2016 was fun and would be a nice addition, lots of doubles & HR. Led League in doubles, RBI, SLG, & OPS.
2011 is balanced and actually stronger vs LHP.
2006 has a LOT of power, though not as much OBP as current, led League in HR, RBI, BB, and Total Bases.

Here’s an even balanced Votto, led League in Walks, OBP, & OPS. And he’s Bulletproof.

1974 Mike Jorgensen, LHB, Expos, .310 .444 .488 .931 in 131 games & 366 PA, a 1 at 1B and a 3(0)e6 corner OFer.

Little more AVG, different because of that, 1928 is better overall.

1981 Carney Lansford BOS Bats-R BAL-1L 3b-3e24, 1b-3e5 INJ Risk-15

A couple of good improvements here. I think I like the more balanced 1981 card when he won Batting Title.

1987 Brook Jacoby CLE Bats-R BAL-4R 3b-4e25, 1b-4e25 INJ Risk-3

RH—2b-4.4 3b-0.8 HR-2.2 BB-6 .284/.324/.406 OPS-.730
I remember as a kid thinking the Braves had some prospects with cool names: Brett Butler & Brook Jacoby. Then they were the players to be named later in the Len Barker deal. Dumb.

1990 Kelly Gruber TOR Bats-R BAL-1L 3b-2e22, RF-4(+2)e7 INJ Risk-3

Good improvement, would be good to have the 1991 NL MVP and Batting Champ.

One more obscure and long forgotten middle infielder:

1949 Cass Michaels, White Sox, RHB, 2B .308 6 83 .417 .421 Career highs in G (all 154), PA, R, H, 2B, 3B, RBI, BB, BA, OBP, SLG, OPS & OPS+. The first of 2 straight years as an All-Star. Sox traded him to make way for future HOFer Nellie Fox. Not sure about his D, but would be a big improvement over his 1951 card.
