Not a closer in the whole list, they get no respect. Otherwise nice piece, I might have chosen a different format for framing.

Question

This is a great discussion starter... Who would you replace in this and with whom would you replace them???

The original 5 Hall of Famers are obvious, but who else?

Can't use the original 5 HOFers. The piece is from the years 1950 - 2000 so its has to be players from only those 5 decades. Guy did a nice job but Kirby Puckett being left off for Lou Brock or Dave Winfield is a head scratcher. Don't get me wrong, I think Brock and Winfield were both great players but Kirby Puckett was a better player who won more on lesser teams.

My bad on the first HOFers. I missed that... One player that isn't on there is Bonds.

He put blurb on his description about Bonds, McGuire and Sosa. To much controversy on them.

"There were several players that were excluded from the list:
Barry Bonds - Due to the controversy concerning steroids
Mark McGwire - Due to the controversy concerning steroids
Sammy Sosa - Due to the controversy concerning steroids"

Yeah because there is no controversy with Clemens. Regardless, it was a sound business decision to exclude those three.

There's no denying Puckett's accomplishments, but I would rather have another former Twin (Winfield) any day. He did advertisements for baseball bat toothbrushes in Archie Comics!
