  • Terry Puhl vs. Les Mann

    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?

    Puhl:

    1531 G
    5480 PA
    4855 AB
    676 R
    1361 H
    226 2B
    56 3B
    62 HR
    435 RBI
    217 SB
    99 CS
    505 BB
    507 K
    .280 BA
    .349 OBP
    .388 SLG
    .737 OPS
    112 OPS+
    1885 TB
    59 GDP
    26 HBP
    57 SH
    36 SF
    49 IBB
    26.2 WAR

    Mann:

    1498 G
    5200 PA
    4716 AB
    677 R
    1332 H
    203 2B
    106 3B
    44 HR
    503 RBI
    129 SB
    >=37 CS
    324 BB
    464 K
    .282 BA
    .332 OBP
    .398 SLG
    .731 OPS
    110 OPS+
    1879 TB
    28 HBP
    133 SF
    12.2 WAR

    If Puhl wins, he will face his eighth-most similar comp. If Mann wins, he will face his fourth-most similar comp.

    Terry Puhl is more man than Les Mann but not by as much as I thought when I saw the title.
