There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

"I'm too hungover to watch a loss." - McNulty

Before my time but Bobby Grich might be the biggest non steroid tainted snub right now. Probaby between him and Lou Whitaker. Both are Top 10 WAR 2b and there are tons of HOF 2b who are statistically below them

Hank Blalock started his career with HoF type numbers for his age and then disappeared.

Eric Davis
Mo Vaughn
Carlos Delgado
Eric Gagne
Moises Alou
Kevin Brown

 

Great list.

Eric Davis...  awesome talent, awesome guy.

Mo Vaughn...  David Ortiz before David Ortiz.

Delgado.... huge numbers...

Gagne had that unhittable stretch....

Alou was excellent...


I really like the Kevin Brown mention.   Here, he kept putting out his hand on comebackers.... he was okay that year. Leaves here, goes to the Marlins... and just lights out.

Brown was amazing once he went to the NL. A guy who showed me the difference between the quality of leagues at that time. Not that he didnt step up his game but I have more appreciation for guys who were great mostly in the AL

Who was the slugging Cubby we wanted all those years who played 1B? We got him at the end, per usual. Drawing a blank. He was good. Kinda proves the point, no?

 

For some reason Ron Kittle popped into my head, but he was a CWS when he was actually good.

Adrian Beltre is still playing but routinely forgotten considering he has HoF numbers.

I know he wasn't a great hitter, but Ron Karkovice was a pretty damn good catcher.

Won't pretend I remember Dwight Gooden's '84 and '85 seasons.... but wow were they ridiculous.  Ages 19 and 20.  Unreal.

I feel like 90% of these guys aren't forgotten.
