The Real St. Louis Sluggers

Postby StlSluggers » Thu Aug 18, 2005 1:54 pm

I'm going to ask for a sig with the greatest sluggers in the history of the Cardinals organization in it. Can you guys make sure I'm not forgetting anyone before I decide on who exactly I want in the sig? I know I'll miss some people, particularly the old-timers.

Here's who I have so far:

Musial
McGwire
Lankford (most at Busch)
Pujols
Clark
Hornsby
Mize

Who else?

Man, that’s a tough list to just pick 4 from. Thanks for doing the leg work, but I'm confused by the OPS number. I thought a good OPS was .900???

By the way, you said baseballreference.com, right? Is that free or pay?

OPS+ is the brainchild of baseballreference. It adjusts for different eras. 100 is the norm.

I've decided to try and go with a sig that says "St. Louis Sluggers" across the top, and "Then... and... Now" across the bottom. From left to right, it would feature Musial, Boyer, Big Mac, and Pujols.

We'll see if I can get what I want. Thanks for the help, Pogo!
