A fine player with a WARP3 of 91+. One of the very few Pennsylvania Dutch to play MLB. He was the first player to ever hit GSHR's in back-to-back games. Went to 4 world series with the Cubs. Ambarrassed himself in the 1906 series by going 0-21. In 1911 he set the NL record (since surpassed)for most walks in a season.

in only 8 seasons with the Dodgers, he put up a very impressive 230 RCAA, 9th on the all-time Dodgers list

I'll vote yes, but with less enthusiasm than some posters above.
I get the sense his strength is sabermetric measures, but his career year-by-year seems a little undistinguished to me, even adjusting for the dead ball era.
Career totals meet minimum standards, and I'm not dismissing his sabermetric scores. But I'm just getting a kind of Paul O'Neill vibe...
