    I'd love to hear the reasoning for that because I can't think of one conceivable reason for that decision. Mantle's career WAR is nearly double Gwynn's career WAR and Gwynn's best single season WAR is just barely above Mantle's single season average. Add in the three MVP trophies and seven World Series trophies compared to zero and zero for Gwynn and I don't see how it's even a contest.

    Gwynn "played the game the right way". And he also played when more people on this board were paying attention. That would be my guess.

    I didn't realize Larry Walker was a RedsZone poster.
