I don't know. Their power numbers are similar, but Alomar's batting average was more than twenty points higher. He also won several more Gold Gloves, and was phenomenal in the postseason (.313/.448/.829), whereas Whitaker was mediocre (.204/.306/.656). Whitaker was a good player, no question, but I tend to think of him the same way that I think of his teammates (Allan Trammel, Kirk Gibson, Lance Parrish, etc.). They were All Stars, but not HOF'ers.
