.437 career road slugging%. 

For Outfielders I think one component should be added to the defensive evaluation. The vast majority of Outfielder errors are on throws and all assists obviously are.

I present Ast/Error ratio.

Here's something very strange. His career dWAR at Baseball-Reference is -3.8. His only substantially positive dWAR seasons were 1974 and '75.

Peter Gammons, making the HOF case for Dewey.

Consider these facts:

During the 1980s, Evans led all major leaguers in extra-base hits and ranked second to Rickey Henderson in times on base, with 2,447. For the decade, he ranked second in Weighted Runs Above Average to Wade Boggs, HOF. He led the league in Weighted Runs Created. He led the American League in homers (256) and was second in RBI (900), total bases (2,657), and walks (919). Eddie Murray had more RBI, Robin Yount had more total bases, Rickey Henderson reached base more often, all en route to Cooperstown.

He was the only player in the ’80s with 900 RBI and 900 walks; that hadn’t been accomplished in a decade since the 1930s. He won five Gold Gloves in those years, eight for his career.

For his career, he reached base 3890 times, 25th in history among righthanded batters — at the time he retired, he was 11th on the list. Career extra-base hits? Thirteenth when he retired, and still twenty-ninth, above Joe DiMaggio. When he left the game, he ranked in the top 25 outfielders in walks, homers, times on base, doubles and RBIs.

For the span of his career, from 1972-1991, he was first in the AL in walks, second in homers, third in RBI, second in runs scored, third in doubles.

He played in two World Series for Boston, in which he hit .300/.397/.580/.977, with 15 hits and 14 RBIs in 14 games.
