What about Orel Hershiser. I bet he could've ended up as one of the very best SP if he didn't get hurt.

Anyone say Nomar yet? He's still playing, but injuries have plagued his career...

A lot of these picks are guys who have played for a long time and still put up great numbers. Griffey only missed a few years and he is still a hall of famer. Bonds? Sosa? Are you serious?

Tony Conigliaro should be the absolute posterboy for what if's with Doc Gooden coming in a close second.

:-? wasnt Gherig's career cut short by illness though. the title of the thread is great or greater, so if Lou didnt get sick, he could have been greater, no?
