These two players are considered the two best defensive players at their positions(well I believe they are)

Which one do you guys believe is the better defensive player between the two?

Please explain your answer.

Yes I am talking about Joe Morgan and Roberto Alomar. I consider these two players the best defensive second baseman of all time. I was wondering who you guys believe was the best defensive player between the two? Please explain your answer.

This is a hard one for me to answer because I never saw Joe Morgan in the field whereas I saw Robbie Alomar dazzle.

Gold gloves wise Morgan had 5 and Alomar had 10.

If you base it just on that alone then you have to give the nod to Alomar but gold gloves arent the best statistic to show a players defensive worth.

I am of the opinion that defense is one of the hardest things to statistically judge in baseball. Fielding % just isn't a good indicator IMO. So I am going to give the win to Alomar in this one just because of the gold gloves and the fact I saw him play and how awesome he was.
