Guess Who? Blind Cardinals Comparisons

Hello again. I decided to take a break from my typical articles about why John Mozeliak should do this or that and instead do something a little different. There are 10 player comparisons and using the stats given you have to guess who the player is. (For imaginary bonus points you can also guess what year.) All the players are current or former Cardinals, but their statlines don't have to be from their time in St. Louis. Have fun!
