I'd really like to see an unknown star player like Jack Glasscock finally have a card. That 1e80 rating for SS certainly doesn't do his reputation as the best defensive SS of his era any justice. As a minimum he should be no worse than the 1 range shortstops of his era - Dahlen, Davis, Jennings - who are 1e40. Digging a little further into his Baseball Reference page, we find Glasscock had the highest Defensive WAR of any position player in 1889, he was also #2 in Offensive WAR just behind Dan Brouthers, which of course that means his total WAR was the highest in the league that year, ahead of notable SOM players Anson, Brouthers, Connor, Tiernan. The fact he doesn't have a SOM card, like his contemporaries already do, makes a strong and compelling case for us to add him to the player set.

I have a suggestion for an '80s player that is not represented in ATG..

Mike Davis, who mostly played for the Oakland A's.

https://www.baseball-reference.com/play ... mi02.shtml

It seems to me that Davis' 1985, 1986 or 1987 seasons would be a good candidate for inclusion in the set.

Davis was traded to the Dodgers prior to their 1988 World Series championship, and was standing on second base when Kirk Gibson launched that famous home run off of Dennis Eckersley in Game 1.

Reading comprehension is difficult for you. I’m sorry, don’t know that I can help.

I have an opinion about that card, as do you.
NOMINATE HIM. VOTE HIM IN. I DON’T CARE.

I get it. Personalize and polarize.
Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
Won’t it be fun to make the boards an Alinsky battleground?

Of course, he also said a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
You have become a drag. Your other issues appear to be congenital.


You know, you could change. Stop the ignorant bomb-throwing attacks and engage the community constructively and positively. Put down the Molotov cocktails and play nice. Or keep up your crap. Whatever.


AMEN. That guy is a cancer if you ask me.

Ditto on what EGV said -
Hes ruined a couple of leagues with this same sort of meaningless poop misrepresenting what people actually said.
