I notice that Bennie Agbayani is on Willingham's baseball-reference comp list. I'd say the Hawaiian Nightmare is a better equivalent than Zernial, who had enormous power. Hitting 'em out of Shibe was no small feat, especially for a RHB.
True, Gus is bigger power guy, but as for the type I see them as both being power guys, unappreciated and just a tad below getting that appreciation. I'm certain that guys like Gus were gruntled by certain things, as were the Wally Posts of the world.
