PRODcast 105’s “Old School Player of the Week”: Sixto* Lezcano
*has ten toes
Lezcano grades out at 60-grade DADHAT, 60-grade hairdo, 20-grade facial hair, and has eyes that are either wonky as hell or kinda dreamy (depending on the pic you’re looking at). He gets MAJOR props for rocking the windbreaker underneath the jersey … because “outerwear” is merely a suggestion. I’d like to think that dudes who have total disregard for layering frequently wear their underwear on the outside of their pants.
In a 12-year career with the Brewers, Cardinals, Padres, Phillies and Pirates he put up the following numbers: .271 AVG, 124 OPS+, averaged 2.3 WAR a year, won a GG in 1979 and finished 15th in the NL MVP voting. From 1976-1979 (age 22-25 seasons), he was a 4-win player.
Notable: Sixto had a bizarre year in 1977 in which he hit 21 bombs but only drove in 49 runs.
