With the latest update, I added Mariano River, Derek Jeter, and Chipper Jones.

(and kicked off Al Kaline, Jim Palmer, and Bob Gibson)

Not sure why kicking Kaline, Palmer and Gibson off was necessary. Those are guys who, while not in any way obscure players, would separate those who truly know baseball history. Each would be on the Mount Rushmore of their respective franchise.

Jim Palmer was the pitcher to watch if you wanted to see it all look easy. Definitely a big name in the state too.

Nothing against Jeff Bagwell but it baffles me that he's at 90% for this list.

I would have sworn Bagpipes had played at least one season with the Red Sox, but I looked up his career and he played all his minor league ball in the Red Sox organization before making his MLB debut with the Astros.

You can't leave out Chipper Jones and Mariano Rivera. If you're going to do that you may as well take the quiz down because those are two of the most well known guys of the last three decades, and when Jeter retires after this year his name belongs on it.

I'm pretty sure I tried to type smith and Mike Schmidt's name appeared. What remarkable leniency.

I always find this funny. Yastremski is spelled EXACTLY how it sounds. If someone knows how to say his name (acknowledging that some people don't), then spelling it is easy.

joeythelemur - I always find it funny when people speak condescendingly toward others, when THEY are the ones who are wrong. So you're telling us that you pronounce the "z" in Yastrzemski when you say his name? Now THAT'S funny.

Hey joeythelemur, it is spelled Yastrzemski and the z is silent. Nice try though!

It would be nice to see more teams represented on this. I know it's nice to keep it current, but some of the best players ever are not on this list--because they played too long ago? Bob Feller: Indians, Al Kaline: Tigers, Mel Ott: Giants, Willie Stargell: Pirates. There are more I am sure, but these guys are all-time greats. If someone doesn't remember them, they should be reminded of how great they were.
