2008-03-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven I'm a big fan of your "you could look it up" series on BP. I'm getting the chance to meet Dominic DiMaggio next week, and have been researching some fun things from his career to talk about. I want to get into current players, and my question regards the comparison of DD to Ichiro: is this a good comp? It strikes me that both were excellent defensive outfielders, and although Ichiro's production volume on offense is greater they're both consistent hitters who sustained peak performance after age 30. Do you buy that?

The Little Professor was more selective at the plate than Ichiro, so I suppose you're in the same ballpark, but we're not quite talking the same model here. I'm also willing to bet that DiMaggio got lots, lots, lots of inflationary help from Fenway, and that in the same ballpark Ichiro is probably the far better player... I'd love to have you ask DiMaggio about working for Tom Yawkey, about the personalities of Joe Cronin, Lefty Grove, Jimmie Foxx - all of whom he played with in the early days, of Joe McCarthy, if he believes, as Birdie Tebbets alleged, that McCarthy went with Denny Galehouse in the 1948 playoff because the other starters said "pass." Man, I'm jealous. (Steven Goldman)
