    Default Official 2048 Hall of Fame Discussion: Nicholas Schlemmer

    Nicholas Schlemmer

    .259/.390/.548, 805 HR, 2125 RBI

    One of the great "three true outcomes" (K, BB, HR) guys in FOBL history, Schlemmer didn't notch a lot of value on the basepaths or on the field, but he was one of FOBL's foremost mashers, notching 40+ dongs in 13 of 14 seasons from 2031 through 2044. Was MVP once, Silver Slugger 3 times, and was a member of the 2035 SS champion Hollywood Media Whores.

    Yes, a million times yes. One of my favorite players ever.

    Just short of the all-time HR record.

    Anyone who doesn't vote for Schlemmer is a communist and a socialist and a bunch of other -ists.

    I don't think he's the top tier of all-time greats, because his average kept him from being the level of hitter he needed to be to reach the pantheon given his lack of defensive value. But he's right there in the second tier, just an amazingly consistent, valuable player, putting up big seasons right through the age of 37, a rarity in today's FOBL. My favorite Schlemmer number: he only hit .193 in the playoffs, but had an incredible .416 OBP. In 2042, he had 38 BB+HBP in 92 playoff plate appearances.

    His EYE kept him from hitting 1000+ HRs.
