All right, I need to some help my friends. I am currently engaged in a friendly debate with someone on this issue of who was better: Mike Piazza or Ivan Rodriguez. I was confident in my super saber-friendly arguing skills, but then he hit me with this Bleacher Report article which does a pretty good job arguing that Pudge was/is the better overall catcher, and that both are better than Bench and Fisk.
So what's the verdict? Is the Bleacher Report right, or am I missing some crucial stats that show Piazza to be the superior catcher?
