The Say Hey Kid

I’ve been thinking about Willie Mays quite a bit over the past few days. I want to write something more substantial about him later on, but a thought occurred to me last nite and I’d like to capture it for posterity. Mays was the guy that inspired Bill James to invent the Power/Speed number. If Ty Cobb was the Thesis and Babe Ruth was the Antithesis, that would make Mays the Synthesis; at least from a hitting standpoint.
