Everybody has favorite numbers.
Phillips had 30 homers, 92 RBIs, 32 stolen bases, scored 107 runs. Phillips slugged .485. Phillips had 62 extra base hits.
EE had 16 homers, 76RBIs, 8 stolen bases, and scored 66 runs.EE slugged .438. EE had 42 extra base hits. EE did have fewer at bats.
The batting averages were the same. EE was better at OBP, .356 to .331.
And EE's numbers were appreciably worse until the end of the season, which for the Reds was extended "garbage time" since they were out of the race. Also, as the only two major righty hitters in the lineup, Phillips feasted on lefty pitching, EE did not.
Folks can draw their own conclusions.
