DateQuestionAnswer
2011-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's your vote for this generation's Dick Allen? Skill- and attitude-wise, I guess.
(James from NY)
Gary Sheffield was a reasonable analogue for Allen, a guy who found controversy multiple times while bouncing from team to team. Milton Bradley is even more controversial, but he can't stay healthy and has been far more self-destructive than Allen ever was. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Kevin! Better career: Wieters, Montero, Santana?
(ndubby from sfo)
Actually, Kevin will have the best career. My vote would vary depending on how we're ranking things. For all-around play, it's more likely the other two guys than Montero, but Montero could come up at 20 and play 20 years, albeit in some kind of stick-him-wherever Pete Rose/Harmon Killebrew/Dick Allen kind of career. (Steven Goldman)
2009-05-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Historically, do good players on bad teams tend to get overvalued by the home fans, since they are the best player on the team, or undervalued, since the team as a whole is still middling and not competitive?
(HuffWade from Chicago)
Bill James made the argument for undervalued, prompted, IIRC, on the Yankees dumping Mike Easler after the 1986 season (which turned out to be much ado about nothing). I think he was right -- just look at the Reds and Adam Dunn and their focus on everything he couldn't do while missing the things he did better than most players. Look at Dick Allen and the Phillies. Ralph Kiner and the Pirates. Maybe the right answer is that they become undervalued by their organizations in the "We could have finished last without you" sense. You never can tell who the fans will fall in love with -- as I've remarked here many times, my friends used to drive me almost to the point of violence with their affection for "fan favorite" Alvaro Espinoza. (Steven Goldman)
2008-09-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Maury Wills is on the list too. Please. Yes or no on Dick Allen?
(JKGaucho from Washington, DC)
Yes on Allen. The character stuff is overblown and the production was amazing, if slightly disgused because of the era. My pal Allen Barra made a good argument about this in "It Ain't Over." (Steven Goldman)
2008-05-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, I was recently talking to a friend about the most "feared" hitters who are not in the Hall of Fame. I know that term was really beaten into the ground this past winter when discussing Jim Rice but still, there are some hitters that strike fear into you--either as a fan or an opposing pitcher. Who was the best and/or "most feared" hitters, in your subjective opinoin (in order): Dave Parker, Dick Allen, Darryl Strawberry, Jim Rice, Gary Sheffield, Edgar Martinez or Albert Belle?
(AlexBelth from Bronx, NY)
Yo, Alex! All of the hitters you mention certainly had the fear factor going for them in their prime, but as you say, that's a subjective thing, and subjectivity isn't really the way to go when it comes to sorting them out.

Neither Rice nor Parker had the plate discipline to keep them on the level with the rest of this group, so I'd put the two of them towards the back. Martinez is probably the toughest out, but lacking a bit of raw power relative to the rest of them. I'd put him and Strawberry in the middle. That leaves Allen, Shef, and Belle. Having never seen the former, I'm not sure I can fully grasp the visceral experience of watching him hit, I can only go by the numbers, and his numbers, compiled in an era of lower offense, suggest he was the best. But I'd quake in my boots at facing any of those three. (Jay Jaffe)
