Nope.  Goose had it right.  See you in 2019, Miggy.

Not so fast. KT can always track career days on the DL. :depress:

Or maybe most $ paid for fewest results? :dead:

GAME 78

Plate Appearances - 9,687 (107) - Passed <TED SIMMONS> at 9,685.

Times on Base - 3,823 (64) - Passed JOHNNY DAMON at 3,822.

 

I like these two stats being paired together.

By the way, Johnny Damon, number 65 all time in times on base, is number 40 in all time plate appearances. 

It took him 1230 more appearances to get on base as many times as Miggy.

And then you look at guys like Foxx, Gehrig and WIlliams and what they did with as many PAs as Miggy - or less - and it's no surprise they are regarded as greats.  A short right- or left-field porch doesn't hurt either.

I usually do a year end summary to show how far Miggy advanced over the year, but it's too soon, just too soon.

I'll put up the year-end summary shortly for those optimistic Miggy fans.  Hopefully we won't see any freakish injuries this season.

It's about time.   We've been waiting patiently all off-season for this thread to come to life.

I see Miggy with outside shots at 600 HR and 3500 hits.... that would mean he's Miggy for the next 5 years and relatively healthy.... That's asking a lot I know... I would be very surprised.

Is 550 and 3200 doable?  Only Hank Aaron and Willie Mays have done that.

 Of course Barry Bonds didn't get 3000 hits because he had so many IBB.

The org is going to be careful with their investment now, more DH, etc..  And Miggy appears to be amenable to that.  If he doesn't suffer any other freaky injuries and has a predictable decline with age, I don't see why he couldn't get those numbers.  He may even see a couple more 70+ extra base hit seasons.  

While he had a good spring, it's clear he needs more time to get his eye back.  He looked like a rookie swinging at the good slider down and away when he K'd yesterday.  And it wasn't the first time.  But I think he'll be back sooner than anyone else could.

GAME 3

Hits - 2,678 (T70) - Passed <Luis Aparicio> at 2,676.

Singles - 1,640 (T139) - Passed Dummy Hoy at 1,639.

Hit by Pitch - 61 (T313) - Passed Clint Barmes, Ellis Burks, Vinny Castilla, Lucas Duda, Jeff Francouer, Evan Longoria, Charlie O'Brien and Pop Smith at 60.

And Miggy passed the x-ray exam on his hand.

Dummy Hoy was born on May 23, 1862, the same day that the Civil War Battles of Lewisburg and Front Royal were fought.  He was to be recognized as the most successful deaf baseball player ever, having lost his hearing at age three due to meningitis.  By the time his career ended, he held many major league records.  He still holds the record (with two others) for the greatest number of outfield assists (3) in an inning - all throws made to Connie Mack at catcher.

8 guys tied for the same slot?  Crazy.

I love this thread. 

I have loved the actual game as long as I can remember, but I have been fascinated with the history and the stats for just as long.

Getting the chance to watch one of the all-time greats spend his prime with the only team that matters and then watching him climb the leaderboards is something special. 

So thank you, ktpinnacle.
