Rondell White had an unfortunate nickname in some circles of Internet fandom: RonDL White. In his 15-year career, Rondell White played more than 100 games only 6 times and played more than 138 games exactly once (in 1997). For his career, he averaged less than 100 games per season (1,472 games in 15 seasons).

What if Rondell White had stayed healthy? His 1993 debut was on September 1st. I assume he was just a September callup that season, so I left that one alone. I also left his last season alone - it's not unusual for a player to only appear in 38 games in his final season (although it's perhaps a little unusual for that final season to happen at age 35). From 1994 - 2006, however, I adjusted White's Player won-lost record up proportionally as if he had matched his career high in games played (151). Beyond giving Rondell White better health, it also undoes the 1994-95 players strike.

Anyway, here's what White's career would look like in this alternate universe where there was no 1994-95 players' strike and Rondell White stayed healthy throughout his career.
