Posted by bad_luck on 8/26/2013 6:42:00 PM (view original):Lofton was a black guy playing CF for 20 teams. Ichiro was a rock star. Hall of FAME.

Rickey Henderson was not a very good CF.
And Kenny Lofton deserves the same consideration for the HOF as players like Bernie Williams. Take a look, say "They had a good BL career. They should be proud" and move on to someone who's actually worthy.
I'll repeat myself.
A good defensive CF got on base 42%, hit for power, and stole 80 bases.
A ******* magnificent (apparently) defensive 1B got on base 37% and hit for more power (~50 points of SLG).
Easy choice. Henderson.
More brilliant and in-depth analytic baseball insight by Perfesser Einstein.
"I can name that tune in three notes: position, OBP and SLG. Oh, and also WAR, ************!!!"
BTW . . . Henderson was not a "good defensive CF". You're possibly the only person in the history of the planet who ever suggested he was.
