Prominent Rangers' Most Similar Players

Amazin' Avenue did a nifty post like this a while ago. I don't have the neat formatting skills he did to make this look nice, but I was browsing PECOTA today and found some pretty interesting comparisons.

Each player has his similarity index in parenthesis  next to his name, and his similarity score with the players below next to their names. Remember: below 20 is historically dissimilar and above 50 is extremely similar. (And Hamilton is special.)
