MMO Fan Shot: A Hall Of A Comparison!

An article by posted on November 9, 2011

Here is a tale of two players…

Let’s start off with career averages in some key Categories:

Player B

Here is the thing about this comparison.

Both are similar type players,

Both had a history of hamstring issues causing them to lose playing time during their career

Both were premier Leadoff men for the teams they played for

Both used Speed as a their main weapon

One is considered too much of an Injury Risk because Speed players lose it after they are past their prime!

One played 25 years and well into his MID FORTIES!

ONE was inducted to the Hall of Fame! Something said was not even remotely possible for the other player!

Can you tell which one was which from the Chart showed above?

I present to you:

Player A = Ricky Henderson!

Player B = Jose Reyes!

Memo to Sandy Alderson:

PLEASE SIGN THIS POSSIBLE HALL OF FAMER!
