Kent v. Sandberg

New, 1 comment

This comparison will be a dead horse by the time Kent is actually Hall eligible, but here are the career numbers anyhow:

Traditional means:

Player PA BA OBP SLG HR SB
Kent 9537 0.29 0.356 0.5 377 94
Sandberg 9282 0.285 0.344 0.452 282 344

Advanced means:

Player PA wRAA Bt Wins
Kent 9537 283.5 27.2
Sandberg 9282 242.5 15.4

We obviously can't compare defense because, well, we don't have a ton of either to work with. Even if you assume Sandberg is a better defense, is he 40+ runs or 12 wins better over his career? Otherwise, Kent has a nice argument in this one.

Edit: Tom Tango is better than me.
