    Better shortstop Dave Concepcion or Ozzie Smith?

    As I sit here and read all of the nonsense from the delusional Cardinal fans I go back to my childhood when I would debate with Cardinal fans who had the better shortstop: Dave Concepcion or Ozzie Smith. Well in my book it was Davey unless you wanted a gymnast to do flips on the field. Davey will never get the credit he deserves in baseball, except for Cincinnati fans.

    Comparing both players stats I can't see where Smith is better and seeing that Smith is in the Hall of Fame Concepcion most certainly should. Both players played 19 seasons and Concepcion played in 9 post season series (4 WS) & Smith played in 8 post season series (3 WS)

    Concepcion's stats (.267 BA) (101 HR) (950 RBI) (2,326 H) (.971 Field%)
    Smiths stats (.262 BA) ( 28 HR) (793 RBI) (2,460 H) (.965 Field%)

    Davey beats him in 4 of the 5 categories, plus post season Concepcion had (.297 BA) & Smith (.236) in roughly same amount of games.

    I think without reservation Concepcion is better and most definitely deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.
