Rickey vs. Ichiro

by Czalgosz of the WSI message board

Not that I ever want to see Rickey Henderson in a Sox uniform, but I was looking at his numbers last season, and they were pretty impressive. I decided to compare them to a guy who is some ways is very similar, but in other ways is his polar opposite - Ichiro Suzuki.

Suzuki - (2001) - 722 PAs, 242 H, 30 BBs, 127 R, 56 SBs, 14 CS OBP - .381

That's very impressive. 722 Plate Appearances has got to be close to the record, as well. I decided to take Rickey Henderson's 2001 numbers and prorate them to 722 plate appearances.

Henderson - (2001) - 722 PAs, 135 H, 127 BBs, 110 R, 39 SBs, 11 CS OBP - .366

Now, I'm not trying to say that Henderson is better than Suzuki. But I think these numbers show that they are at least pretty similar. Henderson is almost as effective as Suzuki in terms of what's important - scoring runs.

But, there definitely is a league bias against the base on balls, because they aren't as sexy as hits. So Ichiro gets an MVP award, and Henderson is looking for work.

Again, I'm NOT trying to say that the Sox should get Henderson, mainly because there's nowhere to put him and I don't like his additude. But Kermit definitely has a point when he says that Henderson is still a valuable player
