You simply can't have an out machine at the top of the lineup if you want to score runs these days.
What? So Hatchers outs didnt count?
Youre calling those guys great, they were very good but I dont see any HOFs in that group other than Larkin, ED couldnt stay healthy or wouldve maybe made HOF, please dont discount Hatchers outs because theyre already in the books my friend.
