I've always been a big Rico Brogna fan. Great glove and he was great with the fans in Philly.

Offy said...

No Dewey on the list? I know he only played one season there towards the end of his career, but it had to have been better than at least the last ten names on that list.

Section 36 said...

In the listing of all-time players in the Red Sox media guide, they only list Dewey as a rightfielder. Have to assume they know what they're talking about. But, you're right. He'd be up a bit on the list.

Offy said...

Well, he did play 143 games there over two seasons with a .984 Fld%.

Cater played about the same number of games with a slightly better percentage, but much worse offense.

Burkhart only played 12 games at first. Jeff Bailey only played 38.

If Ortiz is on the list while only playing first during interleague games, Dewey definitely has to be there.
