Player Comparison

I was curious about a player comparison this morning:

Player A - 62 R/ 13 HR/ 46 RBI/ 16 SB/ .291 BA/ .862 OPS
Player B - 57 R/ 15 HR/ 57 RBI/ 6 SB/ .296 BA/ .856 OPS

Player A is Dustin Pedroia and Player B is Robinson Cano. I thought about the comparison because Cano is supposed to be the better offensive player and yet the stats are about even (or actually in Pedroia's favor). Pedroia is the much better defensive player.

Right now Dustin Pedroia is the best second baseman in the American League. Yet he didn't even make the All-Star team.
