  • Patsy Dougherty vs. Tom Goodwin

    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?

    This one was easy. While Goodwin was an exciting ballplayer, he was also a pretty one-dimensional ballplayer. Dougherty appears to have been a bit more dynamic.
