Re: Was Rose Really the 5th Best Player on The Team?
Poorly reasoned article that appeared to intentionally consider only those stats that made Rose look poor in comparsion. For example, why include RBI in the comparsion but not runs scored?
In the decade of the 1970s, Joe Morgan lead all of baseball in Win Shares with 315. Johnny Bench was third with 263. Sandwiched in between was Pete Rose with 288. Of other Reds mentioned, Tom Seaver ranked 11th with 230, Tony Perez ranked 20th with 217 and Ken Griffey 119th with 117.
