I have Jeff Kent 12th. He has a shot to crack the top 10 depending on how his career finishes.
BTW, speaking of Roberto Alomar ... do something fun and check out his stats side-by-side with Barry Larkin. They were nearly identical players: all around complete players who were outstanding defensively in the middle infield. And they'll both be eligible for the Hall in the same year (2010). They're also both VERY deserving Hall of Famers.
No wonder Robby was one of my favorite non-Reds players. But seriously Biggio's number's may be better overall but I liked Alomar's defense and versatility better. I suppose thinking about it Biggio was more versatile (in the lineup I mean) than I am willing to give him credit for but I just liked Alomar better. Probably because he was a player so very similiar to Larkin, not just by the #'s but also in style/grace.
