Amazing Don Mattingly Stats!

Postby acsguitar » Thu May 12, 2005 3:59 pm

I am all for Mattingly going into the hall eventually.

Anyways I'm watching the Cards game and they were talking about how pujols only k's like 50 times a year.

Look at mattinglys stats...

43 was the most k's he recorded in one year...Insane! anyways just thought it was really interesting.

they were talking (durring a Cards game) earlier in the season about batters who didnt miss the ball. They talked about it in percentages it was rediculous. They talked about Pierre, and Ichero, and Mattingly--who I think was the best. but it was like, he made contact on like 97 percent of his swings. Hits, fouls whatever...

That is pretty amazing. Especially for a guy that had his stats and Hit where he hit. IT's not like they didn't go after him.

You might go back and look at Dimaggio also. 39 K's was his high. In 41, he had 30 hrs, hit over .350 and only had 13 k's all year. 361 career hrs, 369 career k's. Nobody else with that kind of power comes close.

Joe D - 6821 AB 369 Ks
Gwynn - 9288/434
Don M - 7003/444
Aaron - 12634/1383

Sosa - 8021/2110
BigMac - 6187/1596
Manny - 5572/1230
Jose Hernandez - 4232/1291 :-b

Why should someone care if someone k's a lot of they have the far superior OPS? It correlates more with runs than k's.

b/c we're discussing a single, narrow aspect of hitting.

also, when you K, you don't advance runners. you also don't hit into DPs, but that's less frequent.

Tell you what. If I have a man on second base, two outs, and somebody is pointing a gun at my head and saying the trigger is going to be pulled if the run does not get home, who do you want at the plate?

Dimaggio
Mattingly
Sosa
McGwire

You can take your stats and go with Sosa or McGwire since they have the higher OPS. I'll take my chances with Mattingly or Dimaggio and I guarantee your grave will be dug more often than mine.

Your argument is why stats are overrated. Dimaggio was a far superior player to either Sosa or McGwire, as was Mattingly before his back went out.

Good to see mattingly fans out here!

You gotta admit Mattingly's '85 season was one of the best ever

35 hr's 145 Rbi's 41 k's 48 Doubles .324 average!

But his 86 season was almost as great if not better!

31 hr's 113 Rbi's 35 k's .352 BA! 53 Doubles!

He was sick...Remeber when he hit hr's in 7 straight games...Who else did that griffey right?
