Top 100 Angels: Dave CHALK #62

Playing the hot corner on some offensively-challenged Angel teams of the mid-1970s, Dave Chalk showed up almost every day to provide league average defense and league average offense in an era when that was exactly what you expected from an infielder. He got on base 907 times in his 732 games as an Angel. His On Base Percentage as an Angel was .327.

Prior to the 1979 season, Dave was inexplicably traded away for Bert Campaneris who did nada in three seasons as a utility infielder.

According to pre-2006 seaon research by Matt Welch, when measured in Win Shares, Chalk had the 9th-best season ever by an Angel 3Bman*:

   1. 27.5 DeCinces 1982
   2. 25.0 Glaus 2000
   3. 22.3 Glaus 2002
   4. 21.8 McMullen 1972
   5. 20.8 Lansford 1979
   6. 20.8 Phillips 1995
   7. 20.6 Glaus 2001
   8. 20.1 Figgins 2004
   9. 18.5 Chalk 1975
  10. 17.8 McMullen 1971

* includes only those who played at least half the team's games at 3rd; and adjusts to 162 games.
