I dont buy that at all. How do you get to decide what part of a career gets counted? Paul Blair was a great CF, but his best 10 years (your parameter not mine) was not better that Griffey's best 10. Do we ignor May's terrible last couple years? Well I do. Great is Great.
I concur with the list exactly, at least of players that I have seen play. If you were gonna edit any of the list IMO Morgan is the weak link.
Let's play two!!!
