This stuff really upsets me. ... How is Dave Winfield not on this list, yet Jeff Bagwell, Robin Yount and Tim Raines are? This is why ESPN has no business making any sort of sports list.

Tried Winfield a few times. Thought I was spelling it wrong. Tried Freddie Lynn as well. As far as ESPN lists go, this is one of their better ones I'd say. They tend to add too many recent players, but it's hard to judge top 100 on recent players until some time has passed. I agree that they make many terrible lists though.
