  • George J Burns vs Carlos Delgado

    I'm going to run a series of polls with the winner advancing each time to face another opponent. Will leave each poll up for a week. I'll try to provide as much statistical information as possible. Hopefully we can get some lively insightful debates going and bring to light some overlooked players from yesteryear.
    If you could pick between these two players to start your franchise with which would you pick? Please consider all relavent information. Their careers as a whole, peak performance, hitting, fielding, baserunning, positional value, league quality, etc.

      Is this the George Burns that Bill James was so crazy about?

        Not 100% sure that Burns was better but I voted for him anyway. He was the best or very close to the best leadoff hitter for more or less a decade while playing for multiple pennant winning Giants teams. He led the league in runs or BB five times along with OBP and SB. Maybe it was a smaller more pigmentally challenged league but he was closer to the top than Delgado.
