    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.

    I'm assuming you are talking about Joe Morgan and Roberto Alomar?

    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.
