    I don't think it matters as long as they fit the criteria in the OP: retired, career batting average below .300, fewer than 200 home runs, and under 1000 in both runs and RBIs. Heck, looks like you could list yourself as long as you are retired from playing ball! Just guessing that your MLB numbers are below the other set criteria, I know mine sure are!

        Yes, Livan Hernandez the pitcher who retired after the 2012 season. His lifetime record of 178-177, with 1,976 strikeouts, two World Series appearences (1 win, 1 loss), two all-star game selections, and a reputation as an "innings eater" in a baseball era WHERE starting PITCHERS ARE EXPECTED to pitch LESS AND LESS innings makes him "pretty good" in my book.

            I got confused because I was looking for 8 position players and one DH. Every pitcher in baseball history fits the criteria of BA under .300, less than 200 HR, etc...
            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

              So, I threw in a few "pretty good " starting and relieving pitchers whose pitching stats roughly put them at the same level and gives them the same stature as the 8 pretty good position players defenders and pretty good
              DHs. Where's the harm in that?

                  No harm. It just moves a little bit away from the OP. Nothing wrong with coloring slightly outside the lines, though.
