    No question in my mind - Ron Santo.

            Among eligible players not enshrined, the best is Ryne Sandberg, who should've been a first-ballot pick in the last BBWAA election.

            He is followed by Ron Santo and Bert Blyleven.

              No way is Ron Santo better than Jim Rice.

                Maybe not, but I'm bleeding Cubbie blue and if I don't say it's Santo then I'm going with Sandberg!

                  Okay I understand it is opinion and all but how is it "no way"?

                  Jim Rice was an average fielding Left Fielder/Designated Hitter who played in a park designed to maximize the stats of power hitting right handed hitters.

                  Ron Santo was a great fielding third basemen playing in the greatest pitchers era in post-1920 baseball.

                  Santo played the harder position, heck he played a position, in a harder league (no DH, means less at bats, which means less runs, which means less gaudy stat lines), and in a harder era.

                  Again how is it no way?

                    I was a big Jim Rice fan when he was a player.

                    I would like to see him the Hall of Fame. He was a fine player.

                    But taking everything into consideration, Santo and Sandberg are the most deserving not currently in. It's not a landslide by any means, but those are my top two.

                          The criteria of the poll excludes players with a lifetime ban.

                            so i guess i can't go with joe jackson as my next choice. then i guess i would have to say canseco. maybe the best all around player to wear a uniform. wait a minute, are steroid junkies out of the poll also? i'll say rickey. hold on, he is still playing, sort of. ok ok. Santo it is.

                              Hey TFAM, how about including Santo and Sandberg? They'd obviously garner the majority of the votes.
