#71 - JERRY REMY, 2B

Jerry made our Top 100 Angels list compiled after the 2005 season at #75 (LINK) and was #70 on our post-2008 season rankings.

Jerry Remy made his debut in Anaheim on April 7, 1975 at age 22. For the next three seasons he hardly missed a game, starting 421 games, all of them at 2B. There he delivered over three dWAR (Defensive Wins Above Replacement) and added 110 Stolen Bases on offense. He was traded to the Boston Red Sox for Don Aase which reaped the Halos plenty of pitching prowess for years to come. Jerry ended up identified with Tom Yawkee's All-White Chowder Machine as the team's longtime television analyst. this doesn't mitigate what he brought to the Angels lineup nor what his glove meant to Halo pitcher ERAs either.

Those 110 SB still rank tenth most in franchise history after the 2013 season. Jerry is tied with Erick Aybar for that mark, although it took Aybar nearly twice as many Plate Appearances (3,519 to 1,845) to get his 110. His 44 Sacrifice Hits also ranks tenth most ever by an Angels player.

A gritty, top of the lineup player who puts the ball into play, Remy still has the eighth lowest At Bat per Strikeout mark (10.5 AB/SO) in Angels club history for players with over 1,500 Plate Appearances. His 8 WAR ranks 40th all time in the Angels record book and his 1.6 and 1.8 dWAR from 1975 and 1976 ranks in the top 50 single season defensive campaigns for an L.A. of Anaheim defender.

So when you channel surf over to NESN, no matter how much whitewashing that voice in the booth is doing for his bosses, he started out on the right path here and remains a Top 100 Angel no matter what.
