Comparable players that you probably didn't expect would be comparable

So I was tooling around Baseball-Reference this morning. It's such a neat place. They are stacked to the rafters over there with really neat information. I think it's neat. Anyway, check out these two players' batting lines since 2010:

Year G PA AB 2B 3B HR BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+
2010 158 712 601 36 0 33 .256 .365 .481 .846 124
2011 156 684 589 26 1 39 .248 .341 .494 .835 120
2012 119 504 435 26 1 23 .255 .335 .478 .813 116

Year G PA AB 2B 3B HR BA OBP SLG OPS OPS+
2010 148 573 509 23 5 25 .281 .353 .493 .846 124
2011 157 664 585 27 2 32 .256 .341 .474 .814 118
2012 125 512 451 31 3 27 .257 .332 .519 .851 121

You may recognize the second one. Or maybe you won't. But I'm pretty sure you'd be surprised at who the first one is. Especially if you know who the second one is. Take a guess.
