1. Toby Harrah - Best offensive shortstop of the decade, and wasn't a total slug with the glove.
2. Roy Smalley - Good offense and defense.
3. Bert Campaneris - As Mark says, he was a solid performer for the entire decade and was pretty decent both at bat and in the field.
4. Chris Speier - Ditto what Mark says.
5. Rick Burleson - Could be construed as another homer vote, but he played far more games than Templeton at short during the decade and was nearly as good offensively. He just edges out Robin Yount, who committed 65 more errors in three more games.
Others you may wish to consider: Bill Russell, 293/350/643 3.4 RC/27; Larry Bowa, 293/304/597 3.0; Robin Yount (Mark has the stats up; shorthand - 297/356/653 3.5)
You see, you spend a good deal of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. J. Bouton
