I was playing a game of Strat today in my 1969 replay and came upon one Carl Taylor, bench player for the Pirates. In 220 ABs, Taylor hit .348 with a .432 OBP and SLG at .457. His counting stats were 10 2B, 4 HRs and 33 RBI. Knowing what I know, he gets pitched around and intentionally walked more than he probably did during the actual season, since he was a career .266 hitter with a .719 OPS in 6 big league seasons as a bench player with the Buccos, Cards and Royals.
After looking that up, the first thing that came to mind was Jeff Keppinger, he of 241 ABs, .332 BA, .400 OBP and SLG .477. He had 16 2B, 5 HR and 32 RBI. I know there some who think he is a part of the future, but I see him as more of a Carl Taylor. So if there is some GM out there who has a scrappiness quotient that Mr. Keppinger might fit, sell high, sell now. His price is probably as high as its gonna get. Astros? Giants? Twinkies? Mariners?
