Great line-up, with the exception of Mr Cork.:doh

I burned my Sammy shirt after that incident, and was so happy he was now Baltimore's problem.;)

I agree. His last season was disgusting the way he treated the fans and the team. Getting Hairston for him was a stroke of genius. Sammy is finished. But i still cannot deny what he did as a power hitter I had to include him because I can't make an outfielder of McGuire.

I see that i have more Yankees than anyone and I have never been a Yankee fan but you've got to admit... that is some franchise.

I think we might be able to put Dawson out there. I didn't mention bonds because whenever I have seen the Giants he hasn't played but I think i saw him when he was with Pittsburg. OK He really deserves it but to protect the youth of the nation I'll go with The Hawk.

Although I don't deny Andre has qualities that are deserving to be on this list, but are we forgetting Ken Griffey Jr.?...

Are you nullifying his whole career based on the last couple of years?...

Yeah but remember the rules: You have had to see the player you name play in person. OK let's revise the rule to include seeing the player play on TV as well as in person.

Do you think Dawson will make the Hall of Fame?

Well, if Sandberg has anything to say about, he and Santo will be in there, he has even said so. Santo is long over due, he should have been in there by now, but I am biased.
