Why, all the armies of Xerxes would tremble when the 300 best position players from 1955 and on gather for WAR. Wins above replacement, that is.
Lou Whitaker ranks 26th, Alan Trammell 44th. I think it's a joke that neither has been elected to the Hall of Fame, but I would have preferred that they rank back to back instead of 18 apart. Here are some cool situations where linked players do rate back to back:
Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken, 1982 Rookies
Jeff Bagwell and Frank Thomas, May 27 1968
Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, longtime teammates
Jim Edmonds and Albert Pujols, though this one won't last long
Graig Nettles and Willie Randolph
David Ortiz and Mo Vaughn
