Joe Maurer (13 seasons) and Glen Perkins (11) - Minnesota Twins
Yadier Molina (13) and Adam Wainwright (11) - Cardinals
Joey Votto (10) and Homer Bailey (10) - Reds

You do have a somewhat fair argument perhaps that guys played through pain a lot more, but that's more because of the abysmal methods of training/medical care/rehab 40 years ago. The way Gary Nolan's health was managed by Sparky and the Reds was shameful — they sent him to the dentist to help cure his shoulder pain, and mostly believed his problems were all in his head. Tons more money is invested in salaries nowadays, so teams are more careful about their multimillion dollar investments.

Really glad that Perez was a part of the Big Red Machine. Maybe he was the glue guy that helped to keep all those egos in check. Definitely need someone like that. But we aren't talking about that. We are talking about who is the best hitter.
Our conversation would be better suited for Pete vs. Votto. Perez isn't on Votto's level.

May 23, 17, 06:48 AM #53Jeez, this argument is funny. It's Votto and you don't need advanced stats to see that. Frankly, I'd take Joe Morgan. But that's not the query. Perez brought many intangibles, and those have been documented by his teammates over the decades. But between the lines, it's Votto.
