In general, that's an impressive set of comps. It includes two Hall-of-Famers (Carter, Morgan) plus one sure-fire future Hall-of-Famer (Jeter), as well as two players who have been elected to the Hall of Merit (Raines and Bonds).

That said, it also contains two players whose careers peaked early like Glaus's. Grady Sizemore's last season as an above average player was at age 25 (in 2008). While Glaus peaked at age 25, he nevertheless remained above average through age 31.

The player among Glaus's most similar whose career shape perhaps most closely mirrored Glaus's was Eric Chavez. Like Glaus, Chavez's three best seasons were his age 23, 24, and 25 seasons (2001 - 03; Chavez is one year younger than Glaus). Chavez's last full season was his age-28 season in 2006, when he played 137 games. This was also the last season when Chavez was meaningfully above average. In contrast, Glaus remained above average when healthy throughout his career.
