Who does he think he is?

Posted mostly because I wanted to provide the setup question for the title of the linked post. Also because anything which makes the Mets look bad makes me happy. Lemiuex's thought about Bill James's rankings remind me of an arguement I got into the other week over who was better in the 1990s, Ken Griffey, Jr. or Barry Bonds. Since James explicitly addresses this and comes out strongly in favor of Bonds, all I wanted to do was force my co-debatant to read the book.

(Fake) Update: Various Mets fan readers write in to say that Keith Hernandez is not the authentic face of the Mets. I wish I agreed with that. But sadly, he is their very image today
