    Lemmee think a little more. I'm pretty busy- my wife broke her foot- but I'll try another guess, hopefully later today.

    Bumping this. It's been more than a week than the last post, and I think it's time to move on to the next version, if anyone's interested in trying another. But we should probably let this one run through the rest of the day.

    Allright- second base 1960s- I don't think it's Rose, there's no way it's Richardson, I've already guessed Morgan, though he's still a possibility. McAuliffe wasn't from NYC. The school thing makes me believe it's Carew. As I said earlier, he came up in 66 or 67- I'll give him a few years to get going. How about

    Rod Carew 1969?

    If I'm wrong, that's my 4th strike.

    Correct, BigRon.

    At this point, we might as throw in all of our guesses

    Do you mean everyone is free to vote, even those who have struck out?

    It's been so long since I've looked at these posts I can't remember who's been nominated. RF, 1970s- I know that Aaron had 1 or 2 big seasons in 71 or 72. Problem is, that's also about the time he started playing a lot of first base. Anyhow, I'll guess Hank Aaron 1971or 1972.

    Aaron is incorrect

    Let's see...we still need SS and RF for the 70's, and the 2B for the 90's tied with Sandberg.

    Based on the clue you gave about the 70's SS I'm pretty sure it's Toby Harrah. I don't know which years of his were the best, so I'll just guess 'em all:

    Toby Harrah 1970
    Toby Harrah 1971
    Toby Harrah 1972
    Toby Harrah 1973
    Toby Harrah 1974
    Toby Harrah 1975
    Toby Harrah 1976
    Toby Harrah 1977
    Toby Harrah 1978
    Toby Harrah 1979

    Okay, it's not Aaron- I didn't really think it was, but.... Let's see- Dave Parker was probably the best player in the NL in 77 and 78. As I recall, he hit for more power in 78. So, I'll try

    Dave Parker- 1978.

    It is none other than Toby Harrah 1975.

    Dave Parker 1978 is incorrect. The correct answer had one more OPS+ point, Ron.

    I'm strugglin' here. Te only other guys I can think of are Murcer, Reggie Smith, and Ken Singleton. But I think all of Murcer's best seasons were as a CFer. Singleton had a number of excellent seasons in the mid-late 70s, and so did Smith with the Dodgers. Multiple guesses:


    Ken Singleton 75
    Ken Singleton 76
    Ken Singleton 77
    Reggie Smith 77
    Reggie Smith 78

    If it's not one of them, I don't know who it could be.

    For the 1990s second baseman tied with Sandberg, could it be any of the following?

    Craig Biggio 1994
    Craig Biggio 1995
    Craig Biggio 1996
    Craig Biggio 1997
    Craig Biggio 1998

    My guess is Julio Franco the year he won the batting title but not sure of '92 or '93. I think it was '92

    Franco: '92
    Franco: '93

    I'd better add 1991 just in case. I had a baseball encyclopedia from either '92 or '93 though and I think he hit .341 in that last year in that book.

    Dave Winfield 1979?
    Reggie Jackson '73, '74, '75, '76, '77?

    Oh I just checked and say that BigRon got the right answer, but Parker '78, Winfield '79 and Jackson '74 all tied at 166. Also surprised in was Jackson '74 that was better than '73 or '75.

    It is Reggie Smith 1977 and Julio Franco 1991. You guys got it.

    Thanks for playing!
