It's literally possible. Rose was a better and more efficient hitter and a better fielder. Rose is a first ballot HOF'er without the betting.

4 more steals in 9 less seasons is something. People didn't pitch around Rose as much because he wasn't as dangerous. How exactly was Rose a better hitter? He got out more often and did less damage with his hits because they were mostly singles. Even his batting avg is only .006 points behind roses. And bagwell is one of the great defensive 1b in baseball history. Rose played more important positions but he didn't play them particularly well.

I'm seriously curious how you would define Rose as a better and more efficient hitter. That's one of the dumbest arguments iv seen. Roses value isn't tied to efficiency, it's tied to longevity. He has the most pas in baseball history
