According to ESPN’s “Top 100” list, Rafael Palmeiro is a better baseball player than Ed Delahanty, who batted over .400 three times and holds a career .346 batting average.
“Big” Ed also died a

All Palmeiro ever did was compile, perjure himself and abuse PEDs.
Advantage, Big Ed.
“Major League” has been in heavy rotation on HBO recently.

Hands down the most atrocious player in RBI Baseball.
Eighteen seasons in the MLB, legendary “RBI Baseball” status, 47.9 career WAR, Ellis Burks also hammered 352 home runs.
Personally glad a good portion of those didn’t occur while he was a wearing a Boston Beaneaters cap.
One of the first offensive shortstops of the modern era. Seemingly more well-known for his bizarre antics — including brawling with Whitey Herzog in the dugout during his checkered tenure in St. Louis.
Managed to play 16 years in The Show, but probably goes down as another player from the 80s era that never lived up to his considerable potential.
Happy Birthday, Charlie Hudson.
You won 11 games for the 1987 Yankees and all you got was this stupid forkball.
