Rose was a better and more efficient hitter
Well, not really. OBP is essentially efficiency. How often a batter avoids an out. Hitting is all about avoiding outs and hitting for power. Bagwell did both better in a straight comparison. The one thing that needs to be taken into consideration is their production relative to their era. That boosts Rose whenever comparing his rate #'s to today's players.
