This one isn't very sabermetrically sexy, but, somewhat interesting, nonetheless. How many players have had at least three seasons where they played 100+ games at SS while posting 10+ HR and 10+ SB?
Here's the answer to that question: For single seasons, From 1901 to 2010, Played 100 games at SS, (requiring HR>=10 and SB>=10), sorted by greatest Seasons matching criteria
|14||Pee Wee Reese||4||1949||1953||30-34|
What's interesting here for me is how few in the game have done this - I mean, after all, we're just talking about ten homers and steals here. Granted, stopstops are often in there more for their glove than their bat; and, maybe that's the driver here?
In any event, Derek Jeter holds the "record" here. But, what if we moved the bar to 20/20? Here's the answer:
Now, that's a much shorter list. And, given his age, Hanley Ramirez will probably be the king on this one very soon.
