  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Gene Richards

    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?

    Those numbers are similar. For those that give credence to such things Richards played in a more diverse league in an era that many cite as the acme of league quality in MLB history, while Dougherty did not. Nonetheless I am still, perhaps myopically, of the opinion that Dougherty was much closer to the top of his league based on his black and gray ink.

      After some deliberation, I went with Richards over Dougherty, though it was close.
