Darrel Chaney at SS??

I thought Concepcion was hurt in '73?

Concepcion was healthy, but he was also hitting only .209, compared to Chaney's .250 batting average. Chaney also had a solid .345 OBP, compared to Davey's anemic .272 OBP.

Here are the AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS numbers for both of them in 1972:

Concepcion (378 AB's): .209/.272/.270/.542, 2 HR's, 29 RBI's, 13/19 SB's.
Chaney (196 AB's): .250/.345/.337/.682, 2 HR's, 19 RBI's, 1/4 SB.


Chaney was the better offensive player in 1972.

I can't believe Sparky is batting Tolan #3, doesn't he know that Tolan's OPS is only .710?

He needs to go. yesterday.

Actually, it's .720, but point well-taken.

On the other hand, Joe Morgan led the NL with a .417 OBP, and hit in the #2 spot with an .852 OPS.

Really good,clutch pitching by Tom"the Blade" Hall. 4.1 of relief to hold the Pirates to one run. Chaney and Concepcion pretty much split time that season. Concepcion really struggled at the plate his first couple of seasons. He probably should have spent more time in the minors but the Reds were pretty weak at SS at that time.

He steals bases, 2 spot! ;)

Tolan must be more of a clutch hitter
