We've a confession to make, SportsNation. We played a trick on you yesterday.

It all started innocently enough. We asked you to compare Andre Dawson and Tim Raines, both of whom are up for induction to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday. We thought the vote would be close, but we were wrong; it turns out that almost 70 percent of you favor Dawson over Raines. That got us thinking: how much do you really know about these two players?

We put up three further questions, asking whether Player A or Player B was better over their career averages, five-year peaks, and best overall season. We omitted the players' names, using only their stats. In this case, Player A was Raines and Player B was Dawson. The results were almost the complete opposite of our original poll.
