    George was a better fielder, and as long as you adjust for the era, Brett has him.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    This one probably isn't going to end up in Chipper's favor.

    Chipper is one of the better third basemen ever, but he is still behind Brett

    I'm going to feel confident about my choice without even looking up George Brett's stats.
    And no poll.... George Brett.

    is this some kind of sick joke?

    George Brett.
    One of the greatest baseball players EVER.
    Jones has had a really good career but he's really not even in the same class.

    Brett

    .305/.369/.487, .374 wOBA, 133 wRC+, 135 OPS+
    80.4 oWAR
    1.2 dWAR
    47.0 UZR
    84.0 rWAR
    91.6 fWAR

    11624 PA

    made 23.5 million in his career

    Jones
    .304/.402/.532, .399 wOBA, 142 wRC+, 141 OPS+
    82.5 oWAR
    dWAR -1.4
    -40.6 UZR
    80.1 rWAR
    88.7 fWAR

    10296 PA

    Made 156 million

    Anyone that is laughing at this comparison I'm guessing didn't even bother to look at their numbers in their respective careers.

    Jones murders Brett offensively (even after adjusting for the era), and Brett was the better defender by a bit throughout their careers. I'm leaning Brett, but after taking a closer look, it very well might be Chipper.


    In the end, I'm leaning Brett, but my God Chipper is right there.

    Chipper. He’s beat as a fielder, but Chipper was great offensively at his peak. Brett was close though.

    And he’s a boyhood idol.

    BRING BARRETT TO CAROLINA, GETTLEMAN!
