The most 1776 player of 2014

The Sporting News offers the awkwardly-headlined piece, “Astros slugger Chris Carter: The most 2014 player of 2014,” thanks to his prodigious amounts of home runs and strikeouts.

Which, of course, begs all sorts of questions. Like, who is the most 1995 player of 2014. (Jason Giambi? Latroy Hawkins? Derek Jeter?) Or who is the most 1914 player of 2014. (C.J. Wilson? You know, closest name to Woodrow Wilson…?) Or who is the most 350 BC player of 2014. (Alex Torres? Alexander the Great…?)

Or who is the most 1776 player of 2014, obviously Ben Revere, who has now been mentioned in posts I’ve written twice this week, which ties a record set by Andrew Cashner earlier in the season and means I’m required to draft Revere in at least one fantasy league next year. Great!

Who is your most ___ player of ___? (I ask, begging for commenters to help create content.)

First, since wOBA wasn’t invented in 1776, Revere is definitely the most 1776 player of 2014, since you can use his wOBA and batting average interchangeably.

The most 2014 player of 1776 was Miles Farthingcrumple, who tore his ACL ringing the bells in the Cambridge church tower during Revere’s historic ride.

Impressively, as a result of your comment, “Farthingcrumple” has now seen an infinite increase to one result when searched using Google.

The next 128 Cambridge residents who tore an ACL underwent Miles Farthingcrumple Surgery at the hands of renowned surgeon Benjamin Church who pioneered the procedure, which we more commonly know today as leg amputation.

I’d say Zelous Wheeler is the most 2085 Player of 2014.

He is named after a famous (future) space crusader, after all.
