  • Ron LeFlore vs. Terry Puhl

    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?

    LeFlore:

    1099 G
    4872 PA
    4458 AB
    731 R
    1283 H
    172 2B

    Puhl:

    5480 PA
    4855 AB
    676 R
    1361 H
    226 2B
    56 3B
    62 HR
    435 RBI

    If LeFlore wins, he will face his most-similar comp's eighth most similar comp. If Puhl wins, he will face his second-most similar comp.

    LeFlore had a good run but I'm taking Puhl.

      You know even though Puhl somehow became the the poster boy for the HOF conversation mockers he gets my vote here.

        LeFlore must have been considerably more exciting - how can a guy who steals that many bags not be? - but if I wanted my team to win more, I'd pick Puhl. Though he wasn't the speedster LeFlore was, he did steal his share of bases, while walking more, striking out less and getting on base just a bit more frequently.

          I watched both these guys a lot when i was a teenager- I voted for LeFlore for All-Star, sure, but Puhl kicked his butt as a player.
