It's hard to get the "modern" guys because they're so inconsistent. Boggs, Brett, and Walker beat everyone so often, it's hard to forget.

Baseball is boring now. Players just try to get walks or hit fly balls. Even Jose Altuvé is a power hitter now.

I missed four. Rico Carty, I never would have remembered, but I'm annoyed I forgot John Olerud. He was one of my favorites when he played.

I think if given the chance he could have been a legitimate two-way player. He was brilliant in college.

Also, he never played in the minors, making his pro debut in the Major Leagues -- one of only eight players since 1980 to do that!

I was thinking this was team shot put or something until I happened to see the tags.

2020 achievements are suspect at best. Big difference between playing 60 some games and 162, especially for batting average. George Brett's .390 might be the most impressive on here. As late as Sept. 19, he was at .399 (technically, .39950!). Gwynn's 1994 season became "what might have been" since it ended early because of the strike.
