Grigori Has Done It! 629

Post by VladimirTrump » Thu Aug 15, 2019 3:38 am

7/5/2429

Grigori Rasputin socked his 629th career home run off of Seattle's Ron Hackett during his first at-bat in front of Oakland's home crowd. Rasputin passes the great Shayne Heflin.

The HR record is the second career record Rasputin has captured. Two seasons ago, he broke the RBI mark. Furthermore, he needs just 21 more runs to become the all-time runs leader, too. Additionally, he needs 4 more triples to pass Frida Kahlo to claim the all-time record there, also. If he makes it another season, he has a shot at the all-time doubles mark. However, the hits mark of 4000+, set by George Rice, is not at risk.

All in all, I was expecting him to get to 700 hr, but the declines he got at OS 34 and beyond made that impossible. I wonder if him having such a long career impacted those declines?

Here is the game

What a great career! Congratulations.
PS So that's what happened to Don Brogna when he entered the witness protection program....

Congratulations to Grigori. He would be aging better if he had spent time in the minor leagues--plus he would have been a better player during his peak. But he won five WS and set two major career marks, good spoils for the choice.

Well done Vlady! Rasputin had rhe best splits of a player entering the AmDraft that can recall. He's truely a beast. Will get him and Frida Kahlo into the HoF asap.

Does anyone else have anybody theyed like to be considered for the Hall of Fame?

I would put up Bob McKeel who is #15 on the career home run list and who also had 3k+ hits. This is a slightly closer call, but I also nominate Tom Dailey who had 246 wins and 2966 SO, just shy of the 250/3k that I think makes a surefire HOFer.

I love players like this.
Part of the reason I wanted to increase the aging wonder on variable development was to keep some of my faves around longer.

Very nice pick that draft!

Bob McKeel quietly had an outstanding career. I always knew he was good, but every stat I check, he is right up there with the best of them
