So I’m sitting here watching Major League I: A New Hope for, I dunno, the 600th time (hey, a major milestone) and I’m wondering: What kind of numbers do you think these guys put up in that final season and over the course of their careers?
Pedro Cerrano has to be a Andre Dawson type-player. I never see that guy take a pitch. Big stick, fast, decent defense, but mostly a smack it type of player. And the voodoo. Andre Dawson loves voodoo.
I see Roger Dorn as putting up Mike Lowell-type numbers for his career (era adjusted, of course).
Willie Mays Hayes is a question mark. He could be Chuck Carr, but I see him having more offense. Not a Carlos Beltran by any means.
Harris, the starting pitcher who puts anything on it, reminds me of a David Wells type.
Jake the Catcher, last name escaping me at the moment, would probably put up a decent OBP with a .260 average and 15 HRs or so. What catcher puts up something like that at that age? Varitek with a slightly higher AVG, I’d say. And probably nowhere near as good a peak. Just a long decent career with an all-star season or two in there at 26-28.
Rick Vaughn is probably having a good Lidge or Wagner season by the end there.
