And don't forget the 1981 strike -- imagine what Raines could have done in a full season. He stole 71 bases (vs. 11 CS) and scored 61 runs in just 88 games (108 team games).
I, too, don't get the lovefest some have with Raines. For a peak candidate he sure didn't lead the league in anything very often.
Either you feel they cheated or they didn't. Vote accordingly.
The stat crowd for years have bad mouthed stolen bases(when they were really just bad mouthing the caught stealing) while the non-stats crowd would defend it with vigor
Still, late in the game, one run game, RISP, who do you want at the plate ? Gwynn or Raines ?
