Bonds played a better defense, but Ruth also pitched.
It's Ruth all the way for me.
See, this is what makes me laugh, when people try to compare numbers from the teens and 20's to current day..... you just can't do it.....IMO.

Since bigh0rt's query specified "ballplayer" over "hitter," I'm going with Ruth (as this thread asks comparison between these two individuals).
The 94 career wins and 3-0 World Series pitching record (ERA 0.86) put the Babe over the top in my humble estimation. He's still in the WS record book as a pitcher for the 14-inning complete game (with 13 consecutive scoreless innings). As a hitter, Bonds stacks up very well, though he didn't spend his first four seasons as a part-time hitter in the dead ball era.
