To me hornsby is better:
WAR has it close however. Hornsby has only 7 more WAR then mantle. (127 vs 120). I would have thought the difference was bigger but mantles speed might have gained him some points.
I agree with that. both were great players though. hitting was quite close. hornby 175 OPS+ and mantle 172. that is not much of a difference.

I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and can’t run, most of the time he’s clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. – Dusty Baker.
