Eddie Murray over Palmiero at Dh,he was a switch hitter and he didn't take steroids and didn't cause Ryne Sandberg to retire early.

How did Palmiero cause Sandberg to retire early? Sandberg played until 1994, retired, and came back for two more years. Palmiero was traded in 1988. Now--looking online there was a rumor that Dave Martinez and Rafael Palmiero were with Sandberg's wife, and that led to the trades of both players... but... it seems online as a rumor.

As far as Murray over Palmiero--honestly, to me it could go either way. Both men are 500HR/3000 hit guys..,, which is a select club of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Eddie Murray, and Rafael Palmiero....sooo..

It's a coin flip. Perhaps Murray plays against left handers and Palmiero plays against righthanders!
