Fred McGriff: Such a great player! He was a 9th round pick which would have made him a steal for the Yankees had they started him. Instead they traded him and he went on to have a stellar career! He was only 7 homeruns shy of having 500 in his career had he not retired and was always consistent on a year to year basis (10 seasons with at least 30 homeruns). He was a 5 time all star and played well in both the national and american leagues. He actually is actually one of the few to lead both national and american leagues in home runs during a season.
