Re: Interesting analysis from Olney on Rice, stats and the HOF
WOY, should they be revisiting the HOF careers of Yount, Winfield and Mike Schmidt as well based on some of those stats?
In some respects those numbers are garbage. The top 10 out makers in that time period were all players that anyone would take on their team any day of the week.. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they were so good and durable that they had a ton of PAs in that time period as well. I bet Johnny Wockenfuss made less outs than Schmidt in the same period. Where's his plaque?
The author talks about how he isn't trying to put Rice down, but that's bologna.
