    Re-adding my rankings, so all can see how I came up with the numbers. Look for the tab labeled 'Total Rank x Ranking Worksheet'.

    Fantastic, fantastic work!

    Well...except for the typo in Ohl's writeup..I believe that should read the 2nd greatest 3rd baseman in history.

    Thank you for the kind words. I had a lot of fun doing it.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it for pitchers. Maybe a fall project.

    I think Gibbay is too high, but I think I can live with RodRiv as #1.

    My pleasure, Shaw. Thanks for all the positive feedback throughout. That was good motivation to keep it moving.

    Thanks for this, Rope. You've been the heart of the history of the FOBL and that is greatly appreciated.

    If we could have kept Bellido in Los Alamos, his numbers would have been off-the charts. McKittrick was a game-changer for us, of course. Great series, Rope.

    Nickname:
    Date of Birth: December 10, 2019
    Drafted: Drafted by the Davenport Falcons with the 6th pick in the 1st round of the 2040 draft
    Current Status: Currently with Davenport Falcons
    Years Played: 2040-present
    Total Points Scored: 1232
    Number of Years Qualified: 15
    All-Star: 2042, 2044, 2045, 2046, 2048, 2051, 2052, 2054
    Best Year: Finished 4th 3 times in 2045, 2046 and 2054 all for Davenport with .907, .899, and .892 OPS and 86.7, 76.7 and 81.6 VORP.

    Quite possibly the best FOBL player that you might not know, Rodriguez has been the star 3rd baseman for the Davenport Falcons for nearly 2 decades. His Gold Glove caliber defense augments very solid offensive numbers; his VORP has qualified 15 years, 6 of them in the Top 10 including 3 times where he finished 4th (weird). OPS surpassed .800 13 times going on 14, and he's 255 hits short of 3000 as of this writing, with an .866 OPS. He has 20 homer a season pop and averages 43 doubles and 10 triples per 162 games, so he's not just a punch-and-judy hitter. 1658 runs scored and 462 steals means he's a constant base threat. The most beautiful statistic, though, is this: in 9274 at bats, he has struck out 294 times, or once every 32 times he comes to bat. Basically he whiffs 5 times a month. In 2045, one of his 8 All-Star seasons, he struck out just 9 times in 746 Plate Appearances. No one puts bat on ball better than Monolo Rodriguez. The Hall of Fame awaits, sir.
    Fun fact I hadn't noticed until today... Building on what rope said there about how Manolo hardly strikes out - it turns out in every year of his career except his rookie season, Manolo struck out fewer times than the number of bases he stole in that season. That's kind of fucked up.

    Some current values:

    Career SB = 467
    Career K = 295
    Career CS = 186
    Career BB = 1200 lolwut

    I was one of those high peak, shortish career guys (if 15 or so seasons is short?). Maybe I was just too intense for the FOBL? Is that possible? *shurg*
