Re: All HOF NL Central team
Good point about Honus. I guess you could add a DH and Mr. Cub could DH.
I have to select Rogers Hornsby over Morgan. The dude could flat out rake at the plate. He is the only player in MLB history to finish a season hitting .424 in fact he hit over .400 three different times while he played. His career BA if .358 which is the highest in NL history if I'm not mistaken. Furthermore, he won the NL triple crown twice in his career. It also must be noted that he was a player manager. What is actually kind of interesting is that he won the NL triple crown in 1922 but because of some goofy rule, no player from NL teams were nominated for MVP. Even with those rules, he was the first player in MLB history to win the MVP twice. This is amazing considering his competition at the time such as Mel Ott.
Joe Morgan was probably better defensively than Rogers Hornsby but Hornsby's offensive output well outweighs any defensive liabilities that he has.
