    I'll happily argue for each of them, but Kaat brought a bit more to the table, with his fielding, his tremendous quickness to the plate and his excellent ability to hold runners on.

      Without digging too deep John leads Kaat by small margins in win shares, WARP3, RCAA, and ERA+. I wouldn't vote either in.
