Tim Raines reached base more than Tony Gwynn.
Alright, we freaking get it already. Someone cherry-picked a statistic to favor Raines and help his Hall of Fame candidacy.
But “reaching base” is not always equivalent to, well, reaching base.
Gwynn batted .338! Raines only .284.
Do we ignore this?
I get it, the argument is to say that Raines is worthy, not
necessarily that he was better than Gwynn. But sometimes it comes off
as just that.
