I find it interesting that you say that Correa has superior defensive skills. I totally agree. **And I was a little surprised that neither Correa, Springer, nor Altuve were at least finalists for golden gloves. **

Sounds like someone needs to be reminded that Rafael Palmeiro won a Gold Glove at first base despite starting 128 games as a DH.

Biggio's best of his "ridiculous" seasons would be an average one for Altuve. Biggio got on base a little more often and **stole more bases**, but Altuve hits with more power and drives in more runs. Most of the difference is in where they hit in the order and ballparks. Overall offensive production, Biggio's best is the expectation for Altuve. Altuve is the far superior defensive player. I'm baffled as to how anyone can say Biggio was the better player.

I did some comparisons of Altuve today vs. Biggio thru 1995. Biggio ended 1995 with 4482 plate appearances; Altuve currently has 4311. I was surprised to find that Altuve has more stolen bases than Biggio did at that point in his career. Altuve has also already matched Biggio's mark for 30+ SB seasons for his entire career.

The full comparison of Biggo thru '95 vs. Altuve:

Slash lines: Biggio .285/.369/.415, Altuve .316/.362/.453

Hits: Biggio 1105, Altuve 1250

Doubles: Biggio 243, Altuve 221

Triples: Biggio 24, Altuve 23

HR: Biggio 79, Altuve 84

RBI: Biggio 389, Altuve 403

Runs: Biggio 615, Altuve 561

SB: Biggio 196, Altuve 231

K: Biggio 574, Altuve 462

WS rings: Biggio 0, Altuve 1

Of course, Biggio's peak years were still ahead of him, but Biggio was also two years older and his peak years have already been matched (if not eclipsed) by Altuve.

Altuve is clearly the better player.
