There's more to two-way play than hitting, but I've grown tired with this argument.
So, to answer
your question, three years ago Benn was a better player.
To whoever mentioned how Hall will be the captain in a few years, do you not think Benn will have the C too?
Well your answer is wrong!
You are ignoring the player age and games played again.. Hall at age 20 has accomplished a hell lot more than Benn at age 20... 3 years ago Benn was not better than Hall now..
nice use of selective stats... the 'hits' are to help generate offense and to get you points. The end goal is to get points. Great that Benn can use his big frame but in the end points and wins are all that matter.
