    Default Official 2049 Hall of Fame Discussion: Brian Gibson

    Brian Gibson

    .312/.393/.551, 758 HR, 3771 hits, 2235 RBI.

    There's a couple different ways to look at Gibson. His 3 Silver Sluggers/MVP combos (2036, 2038, and 2040). His career rankings in home runs (5th), RBI (3rd), hits (4th), and runs (1st). The fact that he accomplished all of that while providing value defensively at third base, and later first base. But his was at his most effective in the postseason, with a .292/.425/.535 line, over 162 games, and he won championships with both the 2035 Hollywood Media Whores and 2043 Davenport Falcons.

    DAV bought Gibbay at the tailend of his career specifically to win a ring, and he delivered. That's all I have to say about that.

    Meh.

    If he was REALLY good, he wouldn't have played for 6 different franchises. Hell, Shaw even traded him at one point.

    Dola.

    The fact that he's 44 and retired for 3 years yet could still start for my team makes me sad.

    IMO 1B & corner OF's need crazy stats to deserve a HOF vote, and Gibson has 'em.
