Williams? Eh. .228 in 1905 with a .305 OBP. Not an especially good base stealer. But who else?

Frank Laporte averaged only about a hundred games per year over six years (split by a stiint in Boston) as a Highlander. I rather take Steve Sax.

Richardson - great, great man. Really lousy hitter.

yeah, agree that Bobby Richardson was not a great hitter...but very smooth around second, and seemed to get big hits. He had a very good World Series with the bat one year...was it 1961? As someone remarked, he was a jewel as a person as well.

He was ny Dad's fav player too. OK, I drop Velarde from my list and make Richardson #10.

Ahhh but Williams was a reportedly great fielder and unlike Steve Sax, could actually throw it to first ...

Sax was a good fielder once. I forget how long his throwing problems lasted, but he did recover - unlike Knobby.
