            --PAP, Nagashima is more popular than Oh in Japan. I wouldn't say he was better. I think it is probably a little early for any Japanese player, but Oh will make my ballot if we go on long enough. Well, if we go on long enough Nagashima would too (I think he is a top 10 all time, anywhere 3B), but not till after OH had been slotted.

              9. Cap Anson
              10. Pete Rose - most popular player of his generation, multi-position but wound up at 1B, high average hitter, very long career, player/manager, legacy overshadowed by shameful behavior... Cap Anson of the 20th century?

                        444 career HRs in 17 seasons, lifetime .305 hitter in the equivalent of a late 60's/early 70s offensive era. Led in batting average 6 times, but HRs only twice, mostly trailing his teammate Oh. Led his league in hits 10 times, RBI 5, and even once in stolen bases. Much better all around player than Oh, although with 400 less!! HRs. Nagashima played on 13 pennant winners...one source says consecutively! I'll stick by my pick, mostly because I think he is top 5 at 3B, slightly ahead of George Brett. I fully expected to catch some slack over this too BTW, Brett and Oh are up next.

                          Whenever I swung at a bad ball a little bit high or even inside I didn't like it, but when I swung at a bad ball that was in the dirt or outside, Jesus, I just wanted to puke because I knew that if I hit it I wouldn't have done anything with it anyway. -- Ted Williams
