Just in case you thought Foxx and Gehrig had stats comparable to Greenberg and so deserved an All-Star spot over him, consider this:
Greenberg 55 extra base hits 25 HR 103 RBI .317 batting 1.062 OPS
Foxx 28 XBH 13 HR 50 RBI .313 1.007
Gehrig 25 XBH 11 HR 51 RBI .320 .975
Three all-time greats, but Greenberg clearly had the better stats yet, as mentioned, his own manager overlooked him when naming the ’35 All-Star squad.
CARE TO COMMENT? If you have strong feelings on this baseball season please feel free to make a comment on this site. Is it a farce? Should the season even have begun? Is this year’s champ a legit champ? If someone breaks a record or, say, hits .400, does it count to you? Do you simply feel that, “Hey, some baseball in any form is better than no season at all.”
