Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

So, if I had the same rules as the MLB list, I'd need to add three to replace the 19th century guys. In order:
Greenberg, Thomas, Thome.
I'm guessing there's a moral penalty being inflicted against McGwire and maybe Bagwell. McCovey, for example, is one of my guys, but...
McGwire: OPS+ 162
