Brett Wallace vs. Zack Cox

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Derrick Goold has an exceedingly long comparison of the Cardinals' Zack Cox and the Astros' Brett Wallace.

Someone asked Keith Law about it today in the chat:

Jason (St Louis)

there was an article in the St Louis Post today comparing Brett Wallace and Zack Cox, saying how similar they are. That's way off base, right? Wallace only played 3rd one year and never looked the part and Cox is way more athletic. Other than looking at their stat lines, they have nothing in common, right?

Cox is a better third baseman with more power and doesn't have Wallace's issue with the ball on the inner half. They are/were both big college performers whose lack of agility and speed scared some teams off.
