Would not have thought in a million years it would be this high. Figured him for around the Gil Hodges level.

More like Duke Snider for Clark.
Shame Cooperstown passed on him so quick.

I don't think of Will as an HoFer, but he sure is a great NetShriner. His OPS+ of 138 screams "HoFer", but when you see his WARP3 of 107 you know his career wasn't long enough to accumulate the appropriate counting numbers. In his last 7 seasons he only had one where he played more than 125 games.

The Saber Stat Boys love him... had three great years early (before he turned 26) which made him famous for a long time, and he had a nice swing. If you can stand the idea of him missing anywhere from 20 to 40 games every year, then he was about as good as you could get. Nice OBP, so I will say yes to the part-timer.
