    No, I think that's a great idea. Babe Ruth, Rabbit Maranville, Cap Anson, Dizzy Dean -- there's a ton of players out there who are known far better by their nickname. Go for it!

    That's a fabulous idea.

    Maybe GiambiJuice could do some of the lesser known players.

    Oh well, there goes my idea... I'll think of something else. My .450 OBP quiz was very popular but for some reason the .625 SLG didn't quite catch on. There must be some trick to getting a lot of plays. Maybe if you put it up right at midnight, it will be easier to get on the "most played today" list rather than putting one up in the middle of the day.
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

    Cool quiz idea. Are they the players voted as starters or the players who actually started the game?

    They're the players who actually started.
