In no reality is A-Rod a better Yankee than Reggie Jackson. Or Dave Winfield, for that matter.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: I can't find a way to justify that. Neither can the people who vote, because he's no longer on the ballot. 194-126 with a 3.46 ERA? The only Hall of Famer he's comparable to according to Baseball Reference is Dazzy Vance, not exactly a glowing endorsement.

Well, fark just threw away a big post I had because I was missing a quotation mark in a link and now I'm too pissed to rewrite it, so here are the highlights:

1. Win/loss records are terrible ways to judge people
2. Similarity scores use W/L records, so
3. Cone's ERA+ is 121, which is pretty good
4. Look at Drysdale & Marichal, who played roughly as long and had near identical ERA+s (but played in a time better for pitchers). Might look at Feller too.
5. The Hall of Stats has him as the 36th best pitcher, between Feller & Vance and well ahead of Marichal & Drysdale

Think that's it.

No. 13 should have been referred to as [REDACTED] or just left off the list entirely.
