13-5, 3.80 10-9, 4.06
one thing i don't get about fungoes' ranking system: mcgee finishes second even though he scored just below average both as a hitter (95.1 OPS+) and as a fielder (-6 RAA). apparently he gains credit for his long tenure -- he patrolled busch's centerfield for most of nine seasons, or nearly a quarter of the stadium's life span, and amassed over 1,500 hits during those years. moreover, this system seems to add weight to the player's peak values -- for example, mcgee's MVP award and two batting titles appear to bolster his score. as much as i loved mcgee, i'd rate him fourth on this list -- i make it 1) edmonds 2) lankford 3) flood 4) mcgee. (don't forget, we're only considering the busch years; if we could include curt flood's whole career i'd rate him ahead of lankford.) but my rating willie 4th says less about mcgee (who was a GREAT player) than it does about the incredibly high quality of play we've had in centerfield over the last 40 years.
