Mickey Mantle or Lou Gehrig

Which player do you believe was better, Mickey Mantle or Lou Gehrig.

Lou Gehrig finished with a better batting average, more runs batted in, but had less home runs then Mantle. Also I believe Gehrig beneficiated playing with Babe Ruth. Also Mantle had serious leg problems through out his career.

So in your opinion, who was the better player? Please explain your answer.
