    Jim Rice Vs. Dave Parker

    Just a general question, if you were a GM and had the opportunity to choose only one of these guys to play for your team in their prime, which one would you choose?

    Parker had a gun and was a premier fielder who didn't GIDP the way Rice did.

    Rice's consistency over Parker's defense.
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    Re: Jim Rice Vs. Dave Parker

    I wouldn't take either of them right now. I'd want someone just a tad younger.

    In their prime though, I would have taken Parker.

    And the voters that decide the MVP love this logic.

    RBIs are good!

    Re: Jim Rice Vs. Dave Parker

    defense considered, have to go with Parker. also here he's the cooler person, but that could just be a bias.

    yes, this really is how we make our living.

    JIM RICE = 0 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
    DAVE PARKER = 3 RINGS!

    Gotta give the edge to the man that can deliver the goods.

    It's tough...Rice had more sacrifice flies. But I'll go w/Parker.
