btw & fwiw, the new york mets put willie mays on first base, not in CF as your choice. again, u lean on some crazy criteria that u cannot seem to prioritize. the mets put him at first because of his aging arm. his bat had value against lefties, and in the stadium, attendance grew. if u don't have access to attendance numbers, they can tell you if a team is playing winning baseball, or losing baseball over a period of time. hot batters bring fans to ballparks. hot pitchers do that approx 4-5 times in a month span. pitchers give up more runs on turf no matter how good his defense is behind him on grass. there are so many simple basics about this game that your numbers divert u from. sooner or later those sportswriters may be in sync with your choices, but only if u look at what they look at. if theres a world war II going on in the forties, how on earth could u change something like that? u cannot do it by supposition of what u think happened back then. u cannot re-write history. it p*sses real baseball fans off. accept that mlb has no need for your approaches at translation of numbers.
