New Random Stats
Well, tonight we have Total Career Assists By Third Basemen
. Everyone should recognize all the names on the list. The one name that stands out for me above the rest is Aurelio Rodriguez. I remember when he came to the Yankees in 1980. He didn't play much, and I remember not thinking much of him at the time, but he really had a long career, mostly with the Tigers. And apparently he was a pretty damn good third baseman. His career Rate2 is 106, but in the main part of his career, he consistently had a Rate2 of 110+ with a high of 114 (in a full season). To put it in perspective, Mike Schmidt has a career Rate2 of 108 with a career high of 115.
And it's a good thing that Aurelio could pick it at the hot corner, because he was a horrible hitter! His career OPS was .626 and his OPS+ was a miserable 76 (with 100 being average). To continue the comparison, Mike Schmidt has a career OPS of .907 and an OPS+ of 147.
If I had a little motivation I would add Rate2 to the chart on the right. That would put the list into a little more perspective.
