Don Baylor 1979 AL RBI leader & MVP especially jumps off the page at me. Witt, Davis, Alomar, Boone and quite a few of the others... for someone that lived 18 years in Anaheim, I cant believe I missed so many good players!.
    Don Baylor was the one who I thought for sure I'd be scolded for leaving off the list. When really looking at his numbers though I was struck by his overall lack of true production. With the exception of his excellent 1979 season at the plate (horrible in the field) he wasn't a particularly good player for the Angels. Even with his 1979 season he averaged 1.2 WAR/162 games played while an Angel. Take out his 1979 season and he averaged 0.6 WAR/162 games played. That is almost a cringe worthy lack of production.

Clyde Wright and Bartolo Colon each had a couple of good seasons as a pitcher, with Colon winning a Cy Young Award in one of them. These guys are all arguable as selections and deserve at least a passing shout out or honorable mention. (except maybe Johnson... great at hitting a pitched ball but very difficult personality to fit in well on a team.)
