The 100 Greatest Angels - #59, Chone Figgins

#59 - Chone Figgins, U

Career Stats

In winning back to back A.L. Western division titles in 2004 and 2005, the Angels' relied on the defensive versatility and offensive speed of Chone Figgins. He received 2 10th place A.L. MVP votes in 2004 (he is a league average .974 fielder but can play any position save pitcher).

With the offensively-challenged 2005 squad, he had:
642 AB (7th all-time, Angels single season)
186 Hits (10th all-time, Angels single season)
118 Runs (10th all-time, Angels single season)
His 62 Stolen Bases in 2005 were 2nd in an Angels single season and led the American League.

Desmond DeChone Figgins is already 3rd all-time in franchise triples (31) and 8th in stolen bases (111, just behind Chad Curtis' 116 7th place SBs). He will be 28 on Opening day and figures to be a part of Angels baseball for some time.

Figgy also played a critical role of added depth in the 2002 postseason and, pinch running for Bengie Molina, was on base ahead of Adam Kennedy's historic ALCS Game 5 3rd homerun (Chone in fact scored the tying run in the game, the nail in the coffin of the franchise's futility). His subsequent postseason appearances have been disastrous, though, holding him steady at #59 on our all-time list.
