    random as hell that they have the same career slugging.

    Not that it matters, Henderson had a ton more power (look at the ISO's) and of course, the OBP, and of course, the full game was there as well.

    Henderson played at an earlier time with less runs scored, era adjusted OBP in hierarchical order for every season of his career (over 100 PA's):

    .461
    .451
    .442
    .440
    .439
    .432
    .430
    .427
    .424
    .417
    .417
    .414
    .412
    .411
    .411
    .408
    .406
    .402

    .374
    .371
    .364
    .363
    .348

    It isn't the steals that makes Henderson the best leadoff hitter, it's the insane OBP's. Henderson played deep into his decline, Ichiro fell apart much earlier, and has no business being mentioned in the same breath as Henderson. BTW Ichiro raw or corrected had one .400+ OBP season in his career (.410)


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....
