    I never thought Ken Oberkfell was very good. Out of all the seasons where he was a regular player, he never once drove in 50 runs for a full season. It wasn’t like he was batting lead off. He just didn’t seem to produce in that way.

      Oberkfell was a tweener. No speed at 2nd, no power at 3rd, not enough range at SS. He could get on base, especially earlier in his career…and he could really handle the bat. Hardly ever struck out. Had a really good career for a guy with no power or speed. They were different times where guys like him could actually start. He’d probably be a bench guy/super util now.
