I think if Bonds is on the list of candidates (and he is), then Clemens also needs to be there. You could make a strong case for ARod, too. By career WAR your top 8 are:

Bonds 162

Mays 156

Aaron 143

Clemens 140

ARod 116

Henderson 111

Seaver 111

F. Robinson 107

which team did Clemens have more impact on, since he played for multiple teams?

If that's the stat you want to use, there are a lot of players who make the final 8 ahead of Johnny Bench, and both Maddux and Johnson rank ahead of Pedro.

I can't even imagine what that is supposed to mean.

Sorry, hired, and paid to work for the club.

Epstein attended Yale University where he lived at Jonathan Edwards College. He served as sports editor of the Yale Daily News, and graduated in 1995 with a degree in American Studies. Eventually he took a job in the public relations department of the San Diego Padres where he worked closely with Larry Lucchino

As opposed to being a free/volunteer intern, with the goal of working towards a paying position.

Orioles suck. No guys batting .300. Only the Marlins and the Rays have their top Batting Average guy under our top average guy Frank at .294.

If we didnt have Frank and he was under the Reds the Orioles would be in last place out of 30 teams with top Batting Average guy on the list.

Brooks sucked batting .267, Powell .266 and Blair .250, how are these guys considered Top players? What a joke.

While at Yale, Theo was an intern in the Orioles PR department during the summers of '92, '93, and '94. He was hired by Yale alum and Orioles VP of administrative personnel Calvin Hill. When Lucchino left the Orioles for the Padres, he took Theo with him.

You have a point. Does it make wearing a hat difficult?

Didn't know that, yes, very good success story.

Of the options listed, it was an easy vote of Cal, Frank, Brooks, and Palmer for me. Even accounting for the fact that Frank played most of his career as a Red, his impact and production with the Orioles is irrefutable.

What I'm not getting is how they came up with their eight options in the first place. Is it just career leaders? Most recognizable names? Sure you have the write in option, but McNally is one the list, but not Mussina or Cuellar? Mussina had a WAR as an Oriole over 20 wins higher than McNally, Cuellar was less but still debatable between the two. Not that it matters, none of the three would get picked anyway.
