Alan Trammell Newsbeat
Thursday, August 18, 2016
It’s easy to forget that the 1960s and early 1970s were an abysmal time to put up hitting numbers. There’s a reason the AL introduced the designated hitter in 1973 — scoring was at a near all-time low. if we take Allen’s career records and put them into the context of the 1980s and at Comiskey Park, for example, he ends up with more than 400 home runs, a .324 batting average, .414 OBP, and .592 SLG. His context-altered line would show ten 100-RBI seasons, three 200-hit seasons, and nine seasons of at least 100 runs scored. even if he just comes within 10 percent of those numbers, Allen is an easy Hall of Famer. Allen was clearly a better hitter than Tony Perez or Orlando Cepeda, two more immobile slugging first basemen of the same era.
