In my mind, it's the Wiz, Larkin and everyone else. Ozzie got my vote.

those ripping ozzie's offensive abilities should consider that

a) while he stunk early in his career and late, he wasnt that bad in his peak years.
b) old busch with astro turf had alleys a good 10 feet or more farther out than they are now as well as 10-12 foot fences and plenty of foul ground. it was definitely a pitchers park.
c) the whole strategy of the cards during that time period was to bunt for a single, steal second, get sacrificed to third, get sacrificed home. it isnt sexy, but ozzie did it well. they made it to three world series in the 80's, winning one and were one denkinger blown call away from a second.

now i am not saying ozzie was good offensively, just trying to put his numbers into their proper context.
