Hall of the Exceptionally Good

Here's my allstar team of players who:

1) Played some portion of their career in the retrosheet era
2) Have been eligible for the Hall of Fame
3) Have been passed over at least once

C Ted Simmons - I don't rate him as that bad a fielder, only -24 runs over his career, not enough to negate his excellent hitting. Best C who was a good fielder - Bill Freehan

1B) Mark McGwire (best w/o steroid issues? Will Clark or Keith Hernandez)

2B) Lou Whitaker (Bobby Grich a close second, both similar in quality to Sandberg)

3B) Ron Santo (close over Nettles, Buddy Bell, and Darrell Evans)

SS) Alan Trammell

RF) Dwight Evans

CF) Reggie Smith

LF) Andre Dawson (didn't play much LF, but I'm going with the 3 best OF and he played there more than Smith or Evans)

Pitchers:
Blyleven
John
Tiant
Kaat
Steib

Somewhere on that team is the best player not yet in the Hall of Fame.

Before the back issues, I'd take Mattingly over Hernandez or Will the Thrill.

Why did you decide to leave Jack Morris off the team?

I just think the others were better than Morris.

I'm looking more at career value than peak value. Too bad for Tony that he wasn't able to play a long career. But looking at peak value, I think you can make a case that he was right there with Al Kaline.
