  • Ron LeFlore vs. Doug Glanville

    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?

    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

      There's no such thing as an ultimate stat.

        LeFlore, easily.

          I went with LeFlore, too. Get this, though: In 1999, Glanville hit .325 with 101 runs, 34 stolen bases, 204 hits and 38 doubles...and he didn't even make the All-Star team!

            I didn't even have to look at the numbers here.
