Really?

OPS+ over First 8 years (with 400+ ABs):

Burrell:

2000-106
2001-110
2002-146
2003-90
2004-107
2005-128
2006-122
2007-127
2008-128

Schmidt-
1974-158
1975-142
1976-150
1977-150
1978-122
1979-154
1980-171
1981-199

Also Schmidt is arguably the best defensive 3B ever while Pat is an awful LF. Frankly I see no comparison.
