You think those guys were better than Barry Bonds? Seems weird to me seeing as how Bonds posted a significantly higher career WAR than both of them combined. Bonds had already passed Murphy's career WAR before he was even a Giant.
I initially had Bonds, Clemons and Sosa on my list (didn't include Palmiero). Took them off after considering the steroids question a bit more. I understand the argument to be made on either side.
And no, I don't think Biggio or Murph were better than Bonds. But after deciding that admitted steroid users were not going to get my vote, that is who I was left with as my picks. Fred McGriff and Jack Morris also got heavy consideration from me.
I believe the numbers support Biggio. Murph is more just a sentimental pick. But hey- baseball is a game tradition and sentimentality.
