Ballot Choice #6: Vladimir Guererro
Maybe because he feasted on M’s pitching for half his career, I thought his big league tenure lasted longer than the sixteen seasons it did. However, Vlad the Impaler certainly made his mark over the years, blasting 449 home runs and 1,496 RBIs over his career. He isn’t exactly remembered for his speed, but in a ridiculous two-year period from 2001-2002, Guererro stole a combined 77 bases while being caught 36 times!
Does this bring back memories?
Guererro’s career WAR was 59.3, and he won the AL MVP in 2004. He’s got my vote, and at 94.3%, just about everyone else’s as well.
