These apples vs. oranges comparisons are kind of fun in my opinion. So let's do one.

Alex Rodriguez is one of the greatest power hitters of this generation, hitting .300 with 2,901 hits, 512 doubles, 647 home runs and 1,950 RBI. He has led the league in runs five times, home runs five times, slugging percentage four times and RBI twice, and he has six times eclipsed the 20 stolen base mark.

Eddie Collins, on the other hand, may be the greatest second baseman ever. He hit .333 with 3,315 hits, 1,821 runs scored and 741 stolen bases. He led the league in runs three times and steals four times, while posting a 142 OPS+ and a .424 on-base percentage. He never struck out more than 41 times in a season, though he walked 80 or more times on nine occasions.

Two very great players--but which one is
