And now, for the Bennett additions to the All-Time Utility Team:
OF- Sixto Lezcano
Sixto Lezcano was a player we seriously considered putting on the All-Time Positional Team, but in the end he didn’t make it. I will gladly put him here, because I believe his numbers can stack up against heaps of outfielders from around the majors. Sixto started his career in Milwaukee and stayed for seven years, before being traded in the blockbuster deal that would bring Ted Simmons and Rollie Fingers to Milwaukee. He averaged .275 at the plate, with 102 Homers and 374 Runs Batted In. In 1979, his seminal season in Milwaukee he garnered fifteen MVP votes and got himself one of those fancy Gold Gloves everyone seems to enjoy. He was as consistent in the field as he was at the plate. He was rated at 149 Runs over Replacement at the dish, and .980 fielding percentage.
