    Re: Offseason Priorities

    The closest players I can find to Jack Slugger's and Mickey Slapper's statistical profiles might be interesting:


    Code:
    Player		PA	AB	Singles	Doubles	Triples	Homers	Hits	Walks	HBP	TB	TB+*	BA	OBP	SLG	OPS	wOBA
    Jack Slugger	600	503	42	25	2	32	101	95	2	226	323	0.201	0.330	0.449	0.779	0.343
    Gorman Thomas	619	528	64	24	1	30	119	79	2	235	316	0.225	0.323	0.445	0.768	0.335
    Rob Deer	633	544	65	21	2	32	120	81	4	241	326	0.221	0.324	0.443	0.767	0.336
    
    Mickey Slapper	600	574	112	44	6	10	172	24	2	258	284	0.300	0.330	0.449	0.779	0.339
    Nick Markakis	703	626	124	41	2	18	185	67	4	284	355	0.296	0.364	0.454	0.818	0.358
    Gorman Thomas and Rob Deer are pretty darn good comps for Jack Slugger, although Slugger is better than both of them. They both played in an era when offense was down and fewer runs were scored.

    Nick Markakis is quite a bit better than Mickey Slapper (his OBP is 34 points higher) so he is not really a good comp, but I can't find anyone that closely fits Slapper's odd slash line. It seemed like most of the closest matches were from the 1930's and earlier.

    I used the comps' 162 game career averages.
