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 should be in the HOF IMO.

I always thought Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada were kind of underrated, as much as it pains me to mention Yankees.

One of Ray Ray's great quotes... after he ran for a big game against the Ravens in Baltimore once... "Sometimes a blind squirrel finds a nut." (Of course he screwed up the quote and said something other than that, but was making that point)

Mark Grace?

My all time favorite Non Oriole. I've been a Cubs fan forever too, so that helped, but shit, I named my first dog after him. Tried to meet him during All Star Week in 1993, he was a total dick to me, wouldn't even give me the time of day. So that sucked. 

 

He had the most hits of anyone in the 90s. Most people would not know that or even guess him given 20 guesses.

Sabonis....  didn't get to see his prime, but he was still interesting while with the Blazers. Great passer.

Remember Langston some. Big arm.  Really remember him for the Randy Johnson trade.

Willie McGee

So good. 

 

He's also the reason Eddie Murray got screwed out of the 1990 NL batting crown.  Eddie finished with the highest AVG for the both leagues... but Willie McGee had a higher average when STL traded him to OAK in August... once in OAK he hit .270-something for the rest of the season... so his full-season AVG was lower than several guys... but his NL-only average won him the NL batting crown, even though he finished the season in the AL in a very average fashion.   

 

This was the most plainly weird display of the baseball gods deciding that ROY Eddie Murray would never win another full season award for anything... not MVP, not HR, not BA, not any of them.  HOF, sure, no problem... but any kind of annual-best crown, nope... not even in the year when he had the highest AVG of everybody...

 

(Nothing against McGee... he was just minding his own business and wound up playing an innocent part in it...)

Langston started the All Star game in Baltimore.

Sabonis was sort of ahead of his time for centers. Offensively he'd be a valuable commodity today with his ability to see the floor, pass, and of course draw his defender away from the paint with his shooting range. But his gimpy legs would make him a big liability on defense against teams that can go small-ball.

Here's a name for you guys....LaMarr Hoyt. He really only had one great season, but it was great enough that he won the Cy Young pitching for the White Sox, who were the AL West Champs that season but lost to the O's in the ALCS. Yep, it was 1983.
