Check out this question and response:

Todd (Lafayette, LA): I feel like you are over-objectifying these issues. Why not consider intangibles like being "feared"? To the constant consternation of Red Sox fans, Wade Boggs was probably the least feared HoFer in history with men in scoring position. Anyone watching the Red Sox during Rice's career would take him in that position over Boggs any day. By the way, Rice had a pretty good 1975.
