    1) Fred Lynn: 1st team All Star in 4 of his 5 seasons, unanimous MVP in 79 and 5th in 76.
    2) George Foster: 4 time All Star and 3 times in the top 10 in the MVP voting.
    3) Bobby Murcer: 2 first team selections, both times getting MVP support and a solid contributor throughout the decade
    4) Cesar Cedeno: only one All Star selection and a 9th place mention in the MVP (not same year), but an above average CF most of the decade.
    5) Amos Otis: similar resume to Cedeno, but pitched slightly lower

    Let me add Rick Monday to the list for your consideration. I figured out his OBP, SLG and OPS for the 70s, and he puts up the third best line after Lynn (who has been simply incredible) and Foster, with a 349/466/815 line. Can't figure out his RC/27 for the decade, but he has seasons of 6.8 in 458 AB; 5.5 in 442; 6.9/363; 6.5/403; 5.7/629;5.8/454;5.7/551 and 7.4/374. I have to believe his RC/27 over the decade would be very close to 6, putting him second behind Lynn. And he has the 13th highest total of games played in CF during the 70s.

    1. Fred Lynn - A very easy choice here. No one else even close.
    2. George Foster - Second best stats for this position.
    3. Rick Monday - Take him over Murcer for third due to better numbers and his homer appeal to me.
    4. Bobby Murcer - Would likely be at third if Monday hadn't been a big part of those Legends championship teams.
    5. Jose Cruz - Nice numbers and a very steady performer.
