Simple Graph Comparing Cal Ripken Jr, Derek Jeter, and Chipper Jones

Eutaw Street Hooligans highlighted this atrocious use of statistics and colored spectacles suggesting somehow that Chipper Jones had a better career than Cal Ripken Jr.  Here is an amazing gem: "[Jones] might have been the better overall player [be]cause defensively; they are all about the same as well."

Here is a simple graph that communicates far more than that article.

All three look like great players.  One looks a bit better due to a higher peak.
