    Default Official 2044-2045 Hall of Fame Discussion: Sakonshirou Kenzaburo

    Sakonshirou Kenzaburo

    466 HR, 162 RBI, .298/.366/.486

    As good as he was, Kenzaburo could never seem to find a place to stick. He played sixteen seasons in eight cities. appearing in the All-Star game 10 times. He won rings in Queens and Norwich. You could write him down for 6-8 WAR until he hit 35.

    I coveted this guy from afar. Alas, he is no Hall of Famer.

    Wow, first guy I actually recognize. Agree with Shaw though, no hall of famer.

    Mash was great. Queens became a real threat once we got him. I'm surprised a 2b with 400+ HRs and 1500+ RBIs isn't HOF worthy.

    That is solid pop for a career SS/2B. As good or better OPS than middle infielders Derek Comerford, Stefan Miller, Patrick Barham, Jeffery Victoria, Brian Bonilla, Carlos Garcia, Angel McBride, and Alejo Bocanegra. I think all or most of those guys are in the hall already.

    At a time when middle infield talent was scarce, Kenzaburo was a serious hitter. A 129 OPS+ over a long career in the middle infield is incredibly impressive, as shown by his All-FOBL teams above. He is probably overrated by those All-FOBL teams, because defense wasn't a full consideration until 2037. Then again, he made 2 of his 9 teams after 2037. One of FOBL's best players for 9 straight years show's that he's incredibly valuable.

    I'm not quite as high on him as I am on Koda, but he's going to get my vote. Long career with a good peak at a position that was a trainwreck for most of his stay.
