A HoFer, he deserves the respect of our analysis.

Ray Schalk, only a slightly better hitter? I can see putting him ahead of Schalk and Kling, but not ahead of Schang.

And then, from the "leftovers of the 19th century" file, there's McGuire. I have no idea how to make that comparison.

...or Bresnahan.

My usual timelining method would put Ferrell ahead of McGuire, but the much greater physical burden of catching in McGuire's day places him ahead of Ferrell.

If he's better than Ivan Rodriguez on defense, I'm not sure that would be enough to make me forget his hitting. I've got him 4th among catchers behind Schang, Bresnahan, and Mackey and he's a big step down from them. He is clearly a better hitter than Schalk though.
