    Interesting Pugs. In terms of stats, Albert was the better player. But I am not sure how much Albert contributed to a team beyond the lines. He certainly contributed a lot on the field, so even if he was neutral as far as the intangibles, he did a lot to contribute to winning ball games.

    Pete probably did as much to win games beyond the stat line as any player in history. He has some character flaws, but he was a winner during his playing career. He was a prime contributor to what I consider the greatest National League teams to ever play the game, the 1975-76 Cincinnati Reds.

    I dunno about this comp. Rose won one MVP, had one second, two fourths and a fifth. That is five top five finishes.

    Albert has three MVPs, four seconds (thanks to Bonds), a third, fourth and fifth. That is 10 top five finishes. Doesn’t look all that close to me.

    It would be interesting to see their comparable team W-L records as a player.

    Albert was a clunky foot and the advent of the shift away from being possibly the greatest right handed hitter this side of Hank Aaron. Rose was great, but like Brian, the comparison isn’t all that close.
