That was a lot of fun. It was nice to go back and remember some cool stats about some of the players that don’t get much attention these days.
It was also really cool keeping tabs on how the readers felt about my rankings. I certainly don’t expect everyone to agree with my picks, but that is also what makes this kind of thing fun for me. I love to be educated on the topic of baseball and if that info comes from another blogger or reader of this site than I am more than excited to learn more.
I have to admit that the Mike Schmidt / Eddie Murray battle lasted for quite some time. I changed my mind on this a few times as Schmidt was the more dynamic and defensively gifted player. Had it not been for Murray’s excellence as a hitter for average, Schmidt would have certainly taken the prize. In this case, 2nd place is not a terrible spot to be in.
Thank you to all of the people who kept up with this over the last 31 days. ’31 in 31′ was a lot of fun and a little exhausting but I am extremely happy and proud of the end results.
And just in case you wanted to see the list again it is below for your reading pleasure. I have also added a link on my page under ‘Categories’ if you ever want to look back at the write-ups I did on any of these talented players.
Enjoy!!! I sure did…
