This one’s tough because, while the former outfielder did slug 509 homers in his 22-year career, most people don’t associate him as being one of the best players ever.
Sure, that’s probably a little unfair as his average season in his two decades came to 32-homer, 105-RBI and .292 clip, it may come back to bite him in the end—at least on the first go-round.
Sheff has a World Series ring as an added bonus and the same slugging percentage as ’90s superstar, Ken Griffey Jr., but no one would mention him as having the impact on the game that Junior ever did, so this one will be interesting to watch closely.
