About the only thing that Kent and Alomar had in common was that they both played second base. Alomar was the much better player through age 28; Kent was the much better player from age 34 on. Kent out-homered Alomar 377-210; Alomar beat Kent in stolen bases 474-94. Kent had a reputation as a fairly poor defensive second baseman; Alomar won 10 Gold Gloves.

Interestingly, on that last one, Kent doesn't look that bad defensively according to Player won-lost records and Alomar doesn't look that good in Player won-lost records (or most other sabermetric fielding measures). The next table compares how they look in fielding won-lost records.

Forced to choose one, I'd pick Robbie Alomar. But Jeff Kent stacks up well in the comparison.
