Willie Randolph

Willie Randolph

Randolph ranks seventh in fielding runs overall at second base, and for players who began their careers after World War II, he trails only Frank White. But unlike White, Willie could do some damage with his bat and his feet, and he did it for a long time more than 2,200 games. His career WAR is 60.5, 14th all-time. Most players put up better stats in games their team wins than in losses, but Randolph's case is extreme. In wins (1,229 games) he batted .311 with a .407 SLG and .414 OBP. In losses (973 games) his corresponding numbers were .230/.280/.317 List of New York Yankee Captains Hal Chase... 1910-1912 Roger Peckinpaugh... 1914-1921 Babe Ruth... 1922 Everett Scott... 1922-1925 Lou Gehrig... 1935-1939 Thurman Munson... 1976-1979 Graig Nettles... 1982-1984 Willie Randolph... 1986-1988 Ron Guidry... 1986-1988 Don Mattingly... 1991-1995 Derek Jeter... 2003-
