Re: RZ Greatest OF Tournament - Rd 2
Babe Ruth vs. Ken Griffey Jr
Ruth's 177 career WAR more than doubles Jr. Ruth also had a career OPS of 1.164. Ridiculous.
Mickey Mantle vs. Willie Mays
Toughest one for me. In their prime Mantle may have been a tick better but Mays was able to be really good for longer.
Frank Robinson vs. Hank Aaron
Aaron was a better hitter and defender.
Rickey Henderson vs. Roberto Clemente
Henderson was superior on offense and was a good defender in his prime. Don't think Clemente D was enough to overcome.
Joe DiMaggio vs. Manny Ramirez
A TON better defense.
Stan Musial vs. Ted Williams
WAR is even. Went with Williams because his peak was better.
Mel Ott vs. Barry Bonds
Easy. Superior defender and hitter.
Tris Speaker vs. Ty Cobb
Pretty close seems that Cobb was a little better though.
