    A-Rod vs. Ramirez

    Career wise, who has been better?

    My brother continues to debate this with me, and he won't reason with me. I want to hear what you guys say first, then I'll add in who I've been fighting for.

    I'm sure you've been arguing for Ramirez, and he has been arguing for A-Rod.

    I pick Manny. Although A-Rod is probably more valuable.

    Manny- .312/.408/.589, 506 HR, 1657 RBI, 35 SB
    A-Rod- .307/.389/.579, 536 HR, 1552 RBI, 278 SB

    Can I have both?

    A-Rod just based on speed and fielding, Manny is a corner OF while A-Rod is a SS/3B. Manny is a better hitter for contact but A-Rod has more power. A-Rod should win by a little margin.

    I'll take the stronger defensive player at a demanding position over a defensive liability at the easiest defensive position any day.

    I like Ramirez as a hitter, A-Rod just has the better overall package.

    Manny is one of my favorite players, but I still believe A-Rod > anyone at this point.

    Honestly, I take the better hitter in this situation which is Manny. A Rod PLAYED good defense, he hasn't been a good fielder for some time and although Ramirez has been slumping the last few years and A Rod has been peaking, Ramirez's career numbers are still better.

    A-Rod. He was also the youngest to 500 HRs...and 300 HRs...beating Pujols which is crazy and plus I think by the time A-Rod is done, he will hold the record for most home runs...he is only 32 and im sure in 10 years he would have more than 760 or whatever amount of home runs Bonds does.

    What's your point? I fail to understand where milestones have anything to do with career stats.

    He still plays good defense. He's not the stellar defender he once was, but he's still a very good defensive infielder. Are you looking at just fielding percentage?

    He has been playing very good defense last year and this year.

    A-Rod has fielding stats close to Rolen and better than many good 3rd basemen like Chipper and David Wright.

    A-Rod will end up having a better career.
