We're playing the "who is better than his most similar comp" game.

My starting point was Tommy Dowd, the guy with the lowest WAR among all batters with at least 5,000 plate appearances. I hope to work my way up to *somebody* vs. Babe Ruth. That'd be cool.

Which of these players would you like to build your franchise around?

Isn't it Witt? If I'm not mistaken Witt was an early SS-CF or vice versa conversion.

One may end this exciting project, seeing as how I don't get very many votes anymore.
