  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Jack Smith

    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 two players would you like to build your franchise around?

    I'm actually not even certain who Jack Smith is. I'm thinking he was an OF with the Cardinals somewhere between WWI and 1930.

      I gave consideration to Smith as some of his counting numbers are significantly better than Dougherty's. However, I chose Dougherty once again.
